Everything Arctic


Course description

Take an armchair exploration of some of the wonders of the arctic. Visit a landscape as richly diverse as its seasons: flat sweeping vistas of the western arctic, gentle rolling hills of Cape Dorset and the glorious fiords of Baffin Island. We’ll also visit Greenland to discover its icy beauty. These illustrated talks offer the rare opportunity to meet the hardy, yet gentle, Inuit of the arctic and catch a glimpse of their way of life. This two-lecture series is rich in description and visuals, while short on historic dates. Some cultural treasures of the north will be introduced: the original hand-pulled prints of the Canadian arctic and their makers, along with the historical backdrop of the printmaking tradition. An important aspect of the art of the Canadian north. We’ll “meet” people who took the route north: Rae and Franklin, Hudson Bay factors such as Maud Watt and Duncan Pryde. We’ll also meet some of the unsung heroes and heroines of the north.
