Pre-cleaned, ethically sourced, locally farmed duck and sheep skulls will be provided for interpretation and decoration. There are no limits to the combination of patterns, colours and styles of skull painting. Students will learn Heidi’s signature technique, but are encouraged to express their animal’s story in their unique way.

Heidi Chartrand is a self taught mixed media artist living in Metchosin, BC. Having worked with horses for most of her life, she finds inspiration from animals and nature. In 2016, Heidi started painting on bones, later learning to clean skulls, literally facing her fear of death. Canvases were often donated by farmer friends. She loves getting damaged skulls, that are less valuable to others, but allow for the most artistic interpretation.
