Art workshop and research in the Northwest Territories

From April 23 to 29, I ran an art workshop at Chief Jimmy Bruneau High School in the community of Behchoko, in the
Northwest Territories. The workshop is part of an on-going collaboration between members of the Tlicho Government,
elders, youth and myself to visualize oral stories through art instruction, traditional illustration, and contemporary
animation. The week-long event began with a day of storytelling by elders, followed by a variety of in-class illustration
and animation exercises exploring the visualization of landscapes and oral narrative. The next workshop will take
place in the form of a land-based culture camp between July 16 and 20. Below are some images of student work
and activities.
