On November 14-18, ArtStarts offered the Arts Integration Learning Lab for the first time to artists in BC's Vancouver Island and Coast region. Working with Infusion Program Manager Elfred Matining and Teaching Artist Ewa Sniatycka, 16 artists from Vancouver Island, Salt Spring Island and the Sunshine Coast were successfully accepted. An arts administrator from the Alberni Valley and a community leader from the Okanagan were also invited to participate in the week-long intensive.

Artist Nadine Flagel of Pretext Studio recently planted the seed of creativity at her son's school through her Legacy Tree project. Supported by a Creative Spark Vancouver grant, funded by the City of Vancouver and disbursed by ArtStarts, this project was full of "firsts" for Nadine as an emerging artist: the first time she tested out her teaching skills on a large group of children, the first time she made art for a public space, and the first time she worked collaboratively! We asked Nadine share some reflections about the experience with us... (Before we dive into the interview, a quick reminder that December 15, 2016 is the next deadline to apply for Creative Spark Vancouver grants!)
