This is a monthly online space in which to gather and make art together, hosted by Jessica Canard. Free, open to all ages and genders. To sign up email [email protected]

The December meeting will focus on drawing and illustration. We’ll practice some drawing exercises together that will challenge our technical skills but our imagination too.

MATERIALS NEEDED:
– paper
– something you like drawing with

During the first part of each meeting, Canard will share different techniques in the month’s featured medium. You can follow along and try them out or work on your own projects. Then the group will take turns sharing experiences related to that medium, talking about our art practices, and showing each other what we have made or are making. A materials list for each month’s activity will be posted in advance. You can gather your own materials or pick up a kit at MAWA. Again, you can create with whatever you want during Art Jam. This is just a time to hang out and make stuff together.

Jessica Canard is a multimedia visual artist with a focus on creating murals and making art with people. They are a 2 Spirit Anishinaabe from Sagkeeng First Nation who uses art to explore, reclaim and bridge this part of their heritage with urban living. Born and based in Winnipeg, they have been creating art full time since completing their Bachelor of Business and Administration from the University of Winnipeg in 2017. In 2012, their work was purchased by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in partnership with the Michaelle Jean Foundation; in 2015 they created their first out of province collaborative mural for “Unceded Voices: Anti-Colonial Street Artists Convergence”; and in 2018 they created their first international mural commissioned by the University of Arizona’s Women’s Resource Centre.
