Our class has officially wrapped up! Thank you to all of the participants, Carmichael Outreach, and Creative Partnerships for making this program a huge success.
For the month of June, moccasins made during our class will be on display in the foyer at Regina City Hall and photographs taken by participants will be at the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre. Make sure to stop by and take a peek if you’re in the area!
There was an overwhelmingly popular response to this class. We are doing our best to make a fall moccasin-making class possible. Stay tuned for more details.
In partnership with Carmichael Outreach, we are pleased to be hosting a weekly Art Program out of the Heritage office! This 16 week program will focus on traditional and contemporary art. Students will create teepee lamps, learn about various styles of beading, make their own moccasins, and learn the basics of photography. The program will windup with a city-wide art crawl where students can put their new art-skills to the test and take snapshots of key points of interest.
There are a few spots available for Heritage residents! Join us on Tuesdays from 1:30-3:30pm to create some unique art, meet new people, and learn about culture. There is no cost to participate but space is limited. Please contact us to reserve your spot. You can register for the full course or just one component. Free snacks are provided.
