It's quite an experience. Artists in waiting got a chance to sit with five mentors yesterday in Kenora.
"It's just a chance to harness their skills and help them on their way a little bit," said Darci Everson, on behalf of the Bimose Tribal Council.
The workshops were held at the Kizhik School on Valley Drive. Yesterday's leaders were:
- Woodland-style artist Patrick Hunter of Red Lake,
- Metis artist David Didsbrowe of Red Sucker Lake,
- Destiny Seymour of Winnipeg works with textiles, pottery and block printing, while
- Jean-Paul Levand of Waushushk Onigum sketches with pen and ink and
- Doug Little carves soapstone out of Thunder Bay.
