Top of page

Andrew Qappik is a world-renowned Inuit printmaker from Pangnirtung, Nunavut. Originally inspired by images in the comic books he read as a child, Andrew now finds his subjects in the stories, traditions and day-to-day events of his world.

In I Can Make ART like Andrew Qappik, he captivates his student audience by creating a soapstone relief print before their very eyes. Then it's the kids' turn. They explore Andrew's symbolic imagery--and their own-- as they each create a self-portrait relief point.

Imbued with a deep appreciation and respect for life in the North, I Can Make ART like Andrew Qappik, offers an intimate look at a rarely seen and truly magical creative process.

I Can Make ART is a series of six shorts films that take a kids'-eye view on a diverse group of Canadian visual artists.
