Removed Two Art Retailer Partners

Long time visitors to Free Spirit Gallery may have noticed that we have removed two art retailer partners from our website, one for African art and the other for mainly southwest native Kachina dolls. This is because we have found problems with their websites which is probably a result of neglect due to the recession. Since we want to recommend only reliable art sources for our Free Spirit Gallery visitors, we have removed them. We still do have art partners that we suggest for both African art and Kachina dolls.

Our Suggested Source For White Stone Inuit Art Carvings

Since the holiday shopping season is here, we will suggest several of our favorite sources for various forms of Inuit art and native art over the next couple of days. First, our long time partner for uniquely white stone Inuit art carvings is Gallery Canada. White stone is pretty uncommon since most Inuit carvers tend to use dark color stones for their artwork. But Gallery Canada has sourced a specific part of the Arctic where the local carvers do use white stone. Take a look at the Gallery Canada website.

How Aboriginal Students Can Do Well In College

Here's a new video where I describe the study skills strategy I used to pull myself out of the rut during my studies. It is a great effective strategy in answering how to do well in college or university. High school students can also use it as well. In fact, they are highly recommended to use it as the earlier they get used to this method, the better they will do in college or university. A great thing about this method is that it doesn't involve any cramming for exams! Aboriginal and non-aboriginal students alike can benefit by using this study strategy. So check out this How To Do Well In College University video to learn more about it.
