Call to Artists in Medicine Hat – Draw More Income
Visual Arts Alberta ~ CARFAC is launching our Draw More Income campaign, running from March 3rd to May 28th 2016, as a community engagement project dealing with the socio-economic conditions of artist in Alberta. We aim to collect raw data on the stories, successes and concerns of artists in order to guide our future programing as a provincial service organization.
As a part of this project we are asking artists to draw/write/photograph/craft/ design/ illustrate/etc. your thoughts, stories, successes, and concerns about earning an income from your art and share them with us. These works will be displayed in our gallery space from March 3rd to May 28th and contribute to our annual report.
Medicine Hat Artist, Theresa Eisenbarth will host a session for artists for Southern Alberta to provide their input. Please bring your markers or any other creative material to “draw your income” postcard at the Medicine Hat Library. There will also be a PowerPoint and discussion for artists to brainstorm ideas for making income in the arts.

They created mini-terrariums, essential oil scrubs, wood and clay sculpture, Artist Trading Cards, a stuffed rabbit sewing project, and much more! We even made it into the newspaper.
