The CAVA art gallery mask workshop was a great success. Eight extra-large masks were created by school children from four francophone schools and with the help of five francophone artists, Doris Charest and Virginie Rainville in Edmonton and Patricia Lortie, Étienne Grangé-Praderas and Sabine Lecorre-Moore in Calgary. This project was made possible by a grant from the Secretariat Francophone.

Painting Alberta is a social-media-based project on Instagram and Facebook. It began with a commission of miniature Alberta landscapes that inspired Sabine to create more than 100 acrylic 6”x6” canvasses over the coming two years. This project is a visual thank you letter to the province she has called home for nearly 30 years. You can participate by sharing your favourite Alberta photos for consideration for the project.
