The Canadian Celebration of Women in Computing is an annual two day learning, sharing, mentoring and networking event. The conference brings together leaders in education, research and industry across Canada. This year it was held in Montreal, Quebec.
Google asked us to create some some coloring canvases for the tech, students, faculty, and industry professionals to color at their stand.
We illustrated a technology triptych! The coloring canvas design is from the point of view of the coder, creating polygon meshes that float in imaginary hyperspace around her computer.
"It allowed many students who were otherwise introverted and shy to bridge more easily into a conversation with us by beginning to color" - Google
Everyone had a great time contributing to the canvasses at the event. The students used artists paint pens to colour, adding their own style to some of the spaces as well.
🚀 Blast from the (recent) past! Earlier this month we were lucky to attend #cancwic2017 (Canadian Celebration for Women in Computing) — and brought custom coloring boards 🎨. With the help of five #Googlers, we had the chance to connect with 600 students. Thanks @fancyfeatures for the coloring art 🎨. #google #womenintech #googlestudents
