The Wood Buffalo Artist in Residency (AIR) program is a mentorship opportunity for emerging artists to build on their artistic practices, as well as their professional portfolios.

Local artists were invited to apply for the AIR program this spring. The artists selected to take part are Lisa Bourque, Emma Carter, Alyssa Wallace and Barbara Madden.

The artists will take part in the mentorship program for 10 weeks over the summer. Throughout the program, participants will lead community art workshops throughout the region, and showcase their artwork in a final group exhibition. The residency will conclude Aug. 24.

Community Art Workshops

Throughout the program, participants will lead four community art workshops in various communities throughout the region. The workshops will be free of charge and open to participants of all ages and skill levels.

All supplies will be provided. Please ensure to wear appropriate painting attire. To register, contact Theresa Jolliffe at Theresa.Jolliffe@rmwb.ca or 780-743-7994.
