Indigenous Art Nights are for Indigenous (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) women, non-binary, trans and Two-Spirit people of all ages to learn from knowledge keepers and try new artmaking techniques in a relaxed and welcoming space. Join in for hands-on artmaking, behind-the-scenes stories from Indigenous creators, and traditional teachings. All materials are provided for these free sessions.
