Enchanted Inuit Presented by Erika Snow Robinson

Can you believe we’re on our last project of the school year already?

This month Erika Snow Robinson introduced us to Canadian Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak.  Ashevak worked in many mediums including pen and ink and color pencils.  Her artwork always illustrated creatures and birds surrounded by ornamental feathers and flowers.  Her artwork can be seen in galleries and museums all around the world.   Her most iconic work titled ‘The Enchanted Owl’ was completed in the 1960s and featured on postage stamps multiple times, as well as on Canadian coins.

As well as leading the workshop Erika brought along samples of her beautiful Redondo Beach themed artwork and offered docents the opportunity to go home with one of her prints.

An owl themed brunch was laid on by Parras on Thursday and Tulita, Tuvia and RCC on Friday.
