About the Artist
Founder & Lead Educator
Emma Wales is the creative mind behind ArtVentures. She holds a Bachelor of Arts with Combined Honours in English and the History of Art, Design, and Visual Culture from the University of Alberta. Emma is passionate about sharing her love of art and language with others. Her creative drive has taken her all over the world, culminating in a one-year residency in Paris, where she spent her days in museums, and her nights eating French pastries.
Before founding ArtVentures Emma was a member of the education team at the Art Gallery of Alberta, where she honed her skills as an art educator. Her years of experience at the AGA have provided her with countless opportunities to work with thousands of students in both gallery and studio settings.
