School Days with the Alberta Society of Artists

As Exhibits and Programs Assistant at the Alberta Society of Artists, I developed a craft activity for school groups participating in Alberta Culture Days. We had no idea what the age groups of participating schools would be, so I organized a collage activity inspired by a local artist that was suitable for all ages. Kids had fun glueing shapes and patterns onto a mini canvas and got to take home a mini easel!


The activity was inspired by the work of Diana Un-Jin Cho, a Calgary artists and member of the Alberta Society of Arts. Students got to take home a postcard featuring one of her works, which also doubled as bit of promotion for the Alberta Society of Artists. Here are a few collage pieces from her Chogak Colour Series:

I'm a dye hard fan of textile history and come from a family of crafters and needlewomen. I'm interested in learning more about embroidery and experimenting with new stitches and techniques. I hope you enjoy looking through my recent projects.
