She assisted with tours and classes for a variety of museum visitors. She provided much assistance in preparing for our monthly Family First workshops, and willingly completed all tasks as directed, adapting to the variety of assignments from various staff in the department. Emily made all the arrangements for the intern interviews with select department heads. She completed required readings on Reynolda and its collections, submitted daily reflections, and wrote an interdisciplinary paper and gave a gallery talk on Frederic Remington’s The Rattlesnake (1908). She came in on a few Saturdays to help families make use of an interactive educational kit, the Family Rucksack, designed to help young children and their parents become more deeply engaged with the Virtue, Vice, Wisdom & Folly: The Moralizing Tradition in American Art exhibition. Emily’s experience in, and love of studio art makes her a strong candidate for a career as an art museum educator, or a registrar. Relevant skills which the intern possesses Emily is somewhat reserved, yet she expresses herself clearly, and as a studio artist, has a good understanding of studio art processes that she draws upon in her research and work with the public. Her manner is pleasant and she interacts well with others. Areas in which improvement is needed Emily should follow up this museum internship with additional experiences, perhaps in a contemporary art museum. I think that she should delay graduate school until she has a clearer idea of what her arts career will be—she has lots of options, but needs to know more definitely what she wants to do before she commits to a particular degree program. ______________________________ ______________________ Kathleen F.

A dedicated martial artist and “spiritual seeker” the majority of his life, author Shawn K. Carpenter, brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in the martial arts, personal growth, First Nations ceremonies and spiritual development arenas to play every time he puts pen to paper. Whether he is teaching, involved in ceremony or simply being a father and husband, Shawn continually leads by example, demonstrating the essential balance of a true warrior spirit! Attaining his black belt at twelve, and opening his first Martial Arts program at the tender age of fourteen, Carpenter has been blessed with having helped many people shape and even re-shape their lives, despite sometimes seemingly overwhelming odds. He has also been fortunate to put into practice all the theories and principles that he espouses in his own life, especially in over a decade’s marriage to his beautiful wife, Keli and in helping to parent their three incredible children. The couple’s combined commitment to honouring the natural spirit within their children has lead them to homeschooling for many years and having contributed stories published in Doreen Virtue’s book, “Crystal Children.” Shawn also holds a fine arts degree and spent years alongside his wife painting murals, many of which were donations to shelters or retirement homes. Complimenting his martial arts training, Carpenter has been on a "spiritual path" as long as he can remember, having studied many different authors from Neale Donald Walsch and Deepak Chopra to Eckhart Tolle and Adyashanti. He has participated in numerous spirituality/healing ceremonies and workshops, including a 10 month long, intensive spiritual leadership program run by Canadian workshop leader, Henri McKinnon. Alongside his spiritual study, and in honour of his First Nation’s heritage (Cree/Métis), he continues to uphold ancient ceremonies; Shawn is an experienced Sundancer and sacred pipe carrier. Having undergone dramatic personal transformation and realization, himself, Shawn is dedicated to assisting others on their unique journey through life, particularly by what is known as the “way of the warrior.” Shawn has published many newspaper and magazine articles on martial arts, as well as a weekly email to his current martial arts student base called “message of the week” based on the honour, courage and integrity of living authentically. Shawn K. Carpenter strives to embody the true spirit of the warrior, in turn honouring each and every person whose life he touches, as an expression of our Divine Oneness.

Personally, I consider myself multi-talented. To limit oneself to one field is to limit the possibilities and opportunities. I have an associate's degree in Web Graphic Design from DeVry University.
