The Society of Northern Alberta Print-Artists (SNAP) and Alberta Printmakers (A/P) are collaborating together for a second year in row to celebrate Alberta Culture Days 2021 across the province. While Calgary and Edmonton may often be pitted as rivals in Alberta, SNAP and A/P are joining together to offer a variety of free, interactive, and engaging online printmaking programming for all ages.

The presentations and demonstrations will be recorded and will be posted on both A/P’s and SNAP’s websites linking you to SNAP Gallery’s YouTube Channel following the initial live registered viewings of the dates listed above. However, be sure you don’t miss out on any printmaking skills and processes by registering early to receive more information, including printmaking-at-home supply lists, how to have your postcards showcased, and further updates!

Artist Presentations: Meet the Artist

Come to meet and be inspired by printmakers who live and work across Alberta as they speak about their artistic practice. On September 7 & 14 from 6:30 pm to 8 pm MDT, join us to enjoy live presentations by two different artists, Edmonton- based printmaker Myken McDowell & Lethbridge-based printmaker Kellen Spencer.

Print Party

Join in the fun and print your own postcards to celebrate Alberta Culture Days with A/P and SNAP! Calgary-based printmaker Christina Krentz and Edmonton-based Gina Pasaran will showcase their favourite printmaking techniques and give live demonstrations and tutorials in which you can easily follow along at home.

Postcard Project & Online Showcase

The final portion of programming will result in an online showcase for all participants to have their postcards featured over social media. Artists of all ages will have the exciting opportunity to share their artwork with others by creating an edition of hand-printed postcards, by directly mailing them to friends and family, and by sending images to SNAP and A/P to feature online.
