Nicole Bélanger

Nicole Bélanger is a visual artist who specializes in directing group murals, both in schools and in the community. Her emphasis is on group efforts at the conceptual and creative level. The murals are directed in a way where she provides guidelines and direction as the project progresses to ensure a quality finished product and a level of acquired expertise for the students. Her community murals have also involved the homeless and health centres. Nicole believes in the energy created by a group effort, and that there is room for everyone to create. Nicole is a visual artist in her own right, working in both painting and sculpture. She is a graduate with a masters degree in Visual arts from Norwich University, U.S.A.
