Alberta Culture Days were busy for the Airdrie Public Library beginning with a day spent with Metis storyteller and drummer Denise Miller. She had all of the elementary school students enthralled with Cherokee, Mohawk and Cree stories and song. It was wonderful to watch. Then, my friend Brenda Campbell shared her new colouring book titled The Canadiana Collection with an adult colouring workshop. We hosted Voice & Vision which was a collaboration between 12 artists and 12 writers and I'm so glad I got to take part in it as it was an amazing experience. And finally, we spent two days sharing colouring bookmarks at East Lake park. I decided to draw several patterned feathers to represent quills in homage to the first books created. I think I have finally recovered and, as exhausting as ARTember in Airdrie is each year, I wouldn't trade it for anything.
