Sharing Perspectives: Indigenous Contemporary Art Workshop

Enhance learning about Northwest Coast cultures and contemporary artmaking practices through an exploration 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 right 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.
