Inuit Art: History and Culture

Led By Chris Rinner. The Inuit of the Canadian Arctic have created an art form of striking imagery and exquisite beauty, deep spirituality, and occasional whimsy. Through this powerful artistic expression, the Inuit’s unique way of life, their traditional myths and beliefs, and the animals of the Arctic spring vividly to life. This class will examine and celebrate some of the major regional, community and individual artists in sculpture and graphic arts by presenting the cultural and historical background of Inuit art. The class will show a wide variety of carvings, prints, cultural artifacts. We will view videos of Inuit culture and lifestyle as well as Inuit artists at work.

Wednesday, Jan. 11, 18, and 25 from 6-8pm at First Unitarian. This class is free.
