Art Apart: The New Natives, Indigenous and Inside
About the project
A series of watercolour paintings done over the quarantine that mostly focus on modern Indigeneity in Canada. I'd like to provide those with a new abundance of free time the opportunity to learn about Indigenous Canada, and to celebrate it with others.
This project received financial support from the National Theatre School of Canada via the Art Apart program, an emergency fund for emerging artists who are affected by physical distancing due to coronavirus (COVID-19).
