I am a self-taught artist originally from Slave Lake and moved to Camrose two years ago. I love working with a variety of unique materials such as vinyl records, fabric, ink, trinkets and jewelry to repurpose items and create something new. I also refinish furniture, work in water colour and oil as well! I taught paint nights back in Slave Lake and I am so excited to be teaching here in Camrose now!

Jayda Calon

Hello, my name is Jayda! I am an art teacher at the Chuck Maclean Art Centre. I grew up just outside of Camrose, graduated from the Camrose Composite High School, and attended Augustana for the first two years of my Fine Arts Degree. I recently graduated from the University of Alberta Main Campus in Edmonton in April 2021 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction. During my degree, I enjoyed working and experimenting with many different mediums like collage, drawing, and painting. Some areas I specialize in are acrylic painting and figurative clay sculpture. To check out my work please feel free to visit my Instagram @jalonart. I enjoy teaching and I aim to use my passion for art and working with kids to inspire youth through arts education and create a youth arts community within the City of Camrose.

Sherry Tovell

Sherry Tovell has taught dance in Edmonton since 1990 at the well know country dance club Cook County Saloon. Both Sherry and her husband Rob, worked with the CBC National TV Show “Country Beat” and provided the backup dancers. Sherry’s work as choreographer for two movies filmed in Edmonton was a fun and challenging effort. This was filmed at the country night club “Cook County” where everything had started.

Both were members of the United Country Western Dance Council providing International Dance Events, (River City Dance Festival-Edmonton) culminating in the Worlds Competition once per year. Sherry was elected as President of this association and entered in the Country Hall of Fame in 2006. She has attained certification as a Master Level Certified Judge in both Partner dancing and Line dancing. Sherry’s attained a World Champion award this year (2023) with her amateur student.

Their studio “Dance With Me” started in Edmonton, 2003 and became a great place to learn not only Country Dancing, but Ballroom, Swing, Latin, Hip Hop and Zumba dance as well. Having great success with their programs, they also added a Home School Students Program, promoting socialization as well as building invaluable confidence in each student. West Coast Swing University was started, producing a great Teachers Program and Social Dance Group.

With the recent move to Camrose to be closer to family, Sherry and her husband Rob are dedicated to introducing “Social Partner Dance” and a “Keep Fit Line Dance” based classes, encouraging fitness and the love of all music.
