Colouring It Forward

By Emma Knight, Assistant Curator, Indigenous Studies

June 6, 2020

Four colouring books titled 'Colouring it Forward' sit atop greenery.

Colouring It Forward is a series of colouring books filled with First Nations art and wisdom, created by Diana Frost, an Algonquin Metis artist. These books provide a space for Indigenous artists to share stories through art, alongside Elders’ teachings. A portion of all proceeds from the sale of these books go directly to contributing artists, Elders who shared their wisdom, as well as community projects. We also carry a couple of these colouring books in the Museum Shop!

In an effort to help you de-stress and keep well, Colouring it Forward has released a free downloadable PDF booklet, including colouring pages and medicine wheel teachings developed with Elder John Sinclair and Indigenous artists @themetismama and @kalumdan

Share your Colouring it Forward artwork on Facebook or Instagram before June 21 to be entered to win $500 of art supplies to continue your artistic journey! More details here
