Art Supplies in Trout Lake's Charles Tetcho School, NWT

We are very grateful to the Department of Education, Culture and Employment of the Government of the Northwest Territories for helping us to get art supplies into this remote school. 

Art is a wonderful form of expression available to all who choose to dip a brush, pick up a pencil, pick up a carving implement, or open a sketchbook.

Here are several students with fellow artist Denelee Ekenale.
