Canvas Making

Nayana will be leading a demonstration on how to create your own canvases using practices that blend both traditional techniques with contemporary materials.  A great way to use low/no cost materials to create unique canvases and save money! Join us as we learn from Nayana, view her work, ask lots of questions and even get hands-on to try your hand at these techniques.  This is a public program but we invite Indigenous artists to come and participate and learn with us! There is no registration necessary for this workshop and no charge for Indigenous Artists.  Just come!
