Arts Commons presented Happenings 9: Heritage and Canadian Culture on August 18th, 2017. It featured many talented artist in the community. I presented an art activity at the happening. I gathered plant based materials native to and/or grown in Alberta and created dyes for participants to ink/paint drawings I had created of the Alberta Wild Rose.

For the dyes I picked saskatoon berries from a neighbour's tree, evans cherries from my parents farm, collected pine cones from the front yard, and gathered spinach, carrots and beets from the garden. A simplified method of creating the dyes is to put the collected material in a large pot with a bit of water, boil, then strain.   

It was a wonderful experience working with Arts Commons and I gained valuable experience creating an art activity for the public.
