I Can Make Art ... Like Emily Carr

Top of page

Emily Carr is one of Canada's most recognized and loved artists--a painter, a writer and a free spirit who was deeply influenced by the coastal forests of British Columbia and by Northwest Coast Native art and culture.

In I Can Make Art Like Emily Carr, kids examine Carr's unusual world and the inspirations for her haunting landscapes. Inspired by Emily's trees, they try painting from observation and then from imagination, and create a giant forest mural on a window in their school.

Imparting a deep reverence for nature, colour and individuality, I Can Make Art Like Emily Carr is a fitting celebration of one of the giants of Canadian art.

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