Student Profile: Heather Manson
Heather Manson is an OCAD U School of Continuing Studies student, who has completed her Art and Design Studio Skills Certificate. As part of a recent cross-country road trip across Canada, Heather found herself drawing and painting from the passenger seat of her vehicle. She was able to complete assignments for her courses while travelling, with hours spent staring at the road ahead. Each of her studies started with the line of the road, the Trans Canada Hwy 1, which unifies the series of sketches and her travels. To see more visit our website.
