Marie José Gélinas - Visual Artist and Writer
Marie José was born in Lachine and moved to Pincourt in 1981. As a young girl, Marie José consistently observed and interpreted the world around her in pencil, charcoal, ink, and pastel. However, she did not have formal arts training and did not pursue art as a career.
Ever intrigued by human behaviour, Marie José went to school for linguistics and psychology. Eventually, she chose a career in education and ultimately ended her teaching career in vocational education.
As an adult, Marie José's creativity was channeled into practical applications; refinishing furniture, inventing teaching materials, designing games for her students, and creating posters and publicity material in the workplace.
In 2014, she took a course in oil painting and discovered the incredible benefits of immersing herself in creative work for its own sake. Since her retirement in 2017, art and writing have become front and center in her life. Ever a teacher, Marie José is now building a course designed to help connect creativity to resilience.
The 128th lecture series has come to a close. Details of the next series will be posted by end of summer 2022.
Please note: the lectures are free for members and 10$ for guests.
Due to security issues, we are no longer allowing fully open meetings.All participants must register individually for a unique link to enter.
Others may see them online after they have been posted, but these are done on an occasional basis only.
