Sharing Perspectives: Indigenous Contemporary Art Workshop
Deepen learning about Coast Salish and Northwest Coast cultures and contemporary artmaking practices through an inquiry of diverse artworks by Indigenous artists.
From cedar bark weavings, aluminum public sculptures, and buffalo hide drums to paintings, performances, and prints, students will discuss public artworks located in Surrey, as well as art from the Gallery’s permanent collection.
A local Indigenous artist, who is one of our art educators, will lead your workshop, sharing images, stories, touchables, and a hands-on art activity growing out of their own art practice.
Prepare for and follow-up on this workshop by engaging in suggested activities and discussion questions provided in the Teachers' Guides on our Teachers' Resources and Programs page.
