Dot Art

Virtual Program: Beginner Dot Art with Métis Nation of Ontario

Join our friends from the Métis Nation of Ontario for a virtual dot art workshop. Dot art is a contemporary art form inspired by Métis beadwork where beads are replaced by small dots of colourful paint. Dot art was first used in the Métis context by artist Christie Bel-court. The Métis people are well known for their floral beadwork, which was used to decorate clothing, bags, and other items.

Participants will need the following supplies:

  • Canvas or Paper
  • Paint
  • Fine tip paintbrushes or small thin dowels
  • Pencils
  • Alternatively, small rocks, bingo dabbers, markers, or toothpicks can be used

Space is limited. Registration required. Registered attendees will receive a Zoom link via email prior to the start of the program. Only one registration is required per family.
