About Your Instructor
Steven Botelho grew up near Toronto ON and studied art all his life. He graduated from Sheridan College as an illustrator, and has been recognized from his work in all areas. He has illustrated numerous children’s books about self love, family and life. His love for chalk pastel brought him endless work as a wildlife artist, and continues to commision for his clients. He has created puppets for stage and theatre productions, and now recently started his own show called Our Space.
Our Space was created to help bring awareness and more acceptance around mental health issues and personal disabilities. After realizing it was time to tell his own story about his struggles with mental health, Steven’s goal is to showcase everybody’s unique individuality, disability or not, but embrace them and eliminate the fear behind what we don’t understand about these issues.
Loving all areas of art, Steven has come to understand his talent on many levels by pushing himself to achieve his dreams, and working towards his future goals. His main dream one day is to open his own theatre company and teach children everything he knows, with the hopes that these students can learn to do what they love, and that they can grow up to become themselves.
Through the support of our local partners and board members JCHAC offers a variety of workshops and events that will help members explore the opportunities social prescribing and healing through art has to offer.
