As part of Mi'kmaq History Month, 21 students participating in DARE Arts (Discipline, Action, Responsibility, Excellence) from Riverside Education Centre worked with Mi'kmaq artist, Alan Syliboy, to create works of art that will become part of a larger community project. 

An established Mi’kmaq artist, Alan Syliboy’s work is influenced by the indigenous Mi’kmaq rock drawing and quill weaving traditions. Working in acrylic and mixed media, Alan creates vibrantly coloured images exploring the themes of family, searching, spirituality, struggle, and strength. The use of layering symbols and mark making creates depth and texture in Alan’s work.
