Arts Education

In 2001, KC was invited to conduct a single workshop with youth for an art project at Marymound School with Lita Fontaine as her mentor. Realizing that she could be a role model to future artists, she taught workshops to youth when the opportunity arose. In 2004, KC became the ceramic instructor for Art City, she held the position for a year, but when her career was taking off, she continued on as a casual staff member.  In 2006, KC joined the Royal Conservatory of Music’s Learning Through the Arts program. For 4 to 8 weeks out of the year, she worked with select schools in the inner city of Winnipeg, to teach the core curriculum to children using art. The program offered training to artists on how to be an effective educators and KC was able to hone her skills as an instructor. In 2011, She joined the Manitoba Arts Council’s Artist-In-The-Schools program and has been teaching children the joys of working with clay. In her lessons, she teaches children how to work with clay and the Seven Grandfather teachings and how we can utilize the teachings to take care of our family, friends, community and mother earth. KC Adams believes that art is not an exclusive endeavour; it is open to everyone and has the ability to strengthen the mind, body and soul.
