Like Maud Lewis In this short film, a group of Grade 6 students are inspired by Maud Lewis. With the help of artist Kyle Jackson, they create a folk art painting of their own downtown neighbourhood. Informative, touching and filled with the magic of creation, this film shows both the power and simple pleasure of folk art. (2005 | 12 min) Maud Lewis: a world without shadows Set against a background of her paintings and the Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, landscapes they depict, this short documentary is a portrait of the life and work of one of Canada's foremost primitive painters, Maud Lewis. Emerging from her youth crippled with arthritis, Lewis escaped into her painting at the age of 30. She had never seen a work of art and had never attended an art class but her paintings captured the simple strength, beauty and happiness of the world she saw - a world without shadows. After the films, with the help & direction of Carolyn Vienneau we will start a mural of the Town of Pictou in our program room in the style of Maud Lewis. All materials are provided but since space is limited, pre-registration is required. Summer Performer Tour presents 'A Drawing Workshop with Artist, Author & Traveler Emma Fitzgerald Thu, August 9, 10am – 12pm This year's Summer Performer Tour presents a variety of performers and artists in various public libraries and locations this summer.

It will also open their eyes to new ways to find subject matter to draw, and new ways of letting go of having the end result be 'perfect'. The overall message is that drawing is fun, and we can learn about ourselves and the world around us by doing it. About the artist: Emma FitzGerald is the Author of "Hand Drawn Halifax", "Sketch by Sketch Along Nova Scotia's South Shore" and illustrated "EveryBody's Different on EveryBody Street" by Sheree Fitch.
