Serving Art Educators
and Students Since 1994
Sue Galos recently retired from St. Clair Secondary School of theLambton-Kent school system in Ontario, Canada. Sue graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a major in fine arts. Sue wanted to be an art teacher all her life.
In her retirement, she likes to paint pets and landscapes and she's experimented with the abstract. She says that she uses color as a "moving force" behind all her work. Rich colors and tones, along with various textures give her paintings a unique look.
The art on these pages was done by her students.
