Free Family Paint Nights
HCDSB Indigenous Education Advisory has organized three free on-line paint nights with Indigenous artist Moses Lunham. Two nights have already passed, with one more to come. This is a great way to come together in community to be creative and learn more about Indigenous art. All information for paint nights, pictures and supplies needed will be posted on the HCDSB webpage.
Each session will have a different theme based on the natural cycle of the environment. All sessions will be on the HCDSB YouTube Channel to start 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Wednesday, June 9th, 2021 – Strawberry Being the First Fruit of the Season
Moses Lunham will provide step-by-step instructions, encouragement and has agreed to leave the live video up for a period of one week between each session.
Enjoy the week!
