Alyson Moore is a visual artist and art educator in Calgary, Alberta. She received an MEd in Art Education from the University of Victoria, and holds both a BEd and BFA from the University of British Columbia.
She primarily works in painting and drawing, but also uses printmaking, digital media, and multimedia approaches to communicate ideas and experiences. Her work explores the subtleties and nuances of experience that cannot always be explained in words but that are felt through our senses and emotions. Specifically, she is interested in engaging with the experiences that come from being female in a contemporary Canadian context and investigating connections between and among collective experience and personal experience as a way of finding belonging and her place in the world. By creating art, she provides opportunities for audiences to connect with the themes and feelings that she embeds in her art as a way of furthering the web of connections and relatability of experiences. She does this by gently prompting emotional or sensory reactions that suggest responses to nostalgia, longing, acceptance, or hope.
As a teacher, she is interested in using Arts Immersion, an interdisciplinary and arts-led pedagogy, in her classroom. She is also interested in topics of emergent learning and creative inquiry, and strongly believes in the transformative power of collaborative teaching with other artists and educators.
