Tibetan Artists’ Development Company (Snowland Art School) is a small family-style fine art and handicrafts training school. It was established by Canadian artist Kristel Ouwehand (Tenzin Dolma) in 2010 in response to a growing need for a center for young artists to study art in an ethics based environment. As a result of the local arts culture being increasingly influenced by economics, artists are pressured to produce thangkas in great quantities with less regard for tradition and quality. The quality and respect ordinarily attached to the art of thangka has suffered greatly.
