Faculty: Steven Botelho
Steven Botelho graduated from Sheridan College as an illustrator and has illustrated numerous children's books. A diverse artist, his love for chalk pastel brought him an abundance of work as a wildlife artist, and he's created puppets for stage shows and theater productions. More recently, he started Our Space, a school-touring puppet program that brings awareness and acceptance of mental health issues and personal disabilities. Also a stage performer and director, Steven has been involved with musical theater for 12 years. He loves sharing his talent, knowledge, and passion for the arts. Following in the footsteps of his idol Jim Henson, creator of the Muppets and Sesame Street, he's thrilled to share his story and important messages through creative processes. To quote Steven, "What is it that you're meant to do? Tell your own story"
