I had the privilege of drawing students in the Vancouver and Squamish areas in beautiful British Columbia. Thanks to a local contact and new amazing friend, I was able to experience and learn about the culture and history of Canada’s First Nation People. Canada has some amazing programs working to support its First Nation’s People, such as the Truth and Reconciliation Project. Click here for more information on the TRC.
Vancouver is now my favorite city I’ve visited. It’s closely connected with nature with its hiking trails that weave in and out of neighborhoods, connecting the ocean to ski slopes. And my dog Miya was able to come along and visit one of the schools!
