I pursue teaching by showing genuine care about what the students are learning, and setting an example of professionalism and leadership in class. My teaching expands beyond the classroom, and I carry my enthusiasm for learning and research through it.
It is my hope that students will obtain lifelong benefits from the lessons I give, as I encourage students to be excited about what they are learning and to challenge themselves creatively. When I have great expectations from the students and I can convey my own enthusiasm for the arts, they get motivated to perform, become more engaged and improve their learning.
The most rewarding experience is the frequent realisation that I learn a great deal from my colleagues as well as from the students. Expectations from the students and I can convey my own enthusiasm for the arts, they get motivated to perform, become more engaged and improve their learning.
Dedicated to explore the body and social context through an interdisciplinary practice, Geneviève Sideleau frequently uses a repetitive and labour-intensive approach that investigates body/object relationships. Her obsessively recurring patterns, objects and gestures in her work are found to be hypnotic, soothing and at times disconcerting. Her practice is concerned with communicating a vision of the human condition and illustrating a duality, one that is reconstructed yet familiar, which investigates a collective memory of the quotidian while often presenting the suburban territory and the body as a predominant vessel. Geneviève Sideleau obtained her Master’s degree in Studio Arts from Concordia University. She lives and works on the island of Montreal.
