Sam Asmar. LESS TALK! MORE ACTION!
My approach is to get students engaged in creating from the get-go!
As a teacher, project development specialist, and artist, my goal is to inspire people to learn through creation.

Whether the skill is writing, making a movie, recording a radio program, or selling art, the most powerful way to learn it is by doing it!
I help people develop successful artistic projects that reflect their own skills, abilities and passions.

I started as an incognito voice actor in Kindergarten, receiving my training from hours of study in front of television screens and performing for friends throughout my youth, and then for my students when I became a high school teacher. After graduating from McGill with a B.A. in English Lit and a B.Ed., I realized that art and creation would always be part of my teaching approach.
