The Jack Henshaw Award

We are pleased to announce this years Jack Henshaw Award recipient is Zaria Manook. Jack Henshaw, whom this award is named in honour of, was a tireless supporter and advocate of accessible and affordable adult community programs - Zaria exemplifies the essence of what this award acknowledges.

He has been teaching art through oils & acrylic paint with the Toronto District School Board for nearly 20 years. Zaria is described by his students as being patient and generous with his time by sharing his experience, knowledge and skill. Drawing confidence from his teaching, recurring students have been signing up for his classes year after year, eager to be challenged and pushed out of their comfort to take on difficult projects. One student in particular, insprired by Zaria, returned back to university to complete their Fine Arts Degree. To embolden his students further, he would hold art exhibits for the public where his students would showcase their work.

Zaria's passion has sparked skills in those who did not believe they themselves possessed. We would like to thank Zaria for his dedication and profound impact he has had on his students. And also would like to thank the students and staff who nominated him. Congratulations on being the 2019 Jack Henshaw Award recipient!
