Chiara Arevalo is a Toronto based watercolour artist. In eighth grade she attended her first art lesson under Marija Barac Jandric, where she discovered the value and joy that art brings into our lives. Chiara went on to study Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City with a focus on watercolour and drawing. Through the incredible experiences that Chiara had in art school environments and all that she learned, Chiara realized that teaching children art was something that she felt passionately about. With the belief that a thorough understanding of child development would enhance her ability to teach visual arts to children, Chiara enrolled in the early childhood education program at George Brown College, where she is currently studying.
