Earlier this month I spent a magical week in the Northwest Territories.  I spent a few hours each day hanging out and making art with students from Tuktoyaktuk,Aklavik, Inuvik and Yellowknife. What a trip! Beauty.

 I travelled to schools and libraries in Tuktoyaktuk, Aklavik, Inuvik and Yellowknife. We looked at art and drew together. Almost everyone wanted to draw a snowmobile.
