Alberta Porcelain Artists of Calgary


Equilibrium School loves supporting local groups and giving back to the community that it is a part of the words “inspire” and “give back” are a big part of who we are. We are proud to support individuals who are the epitome of “inspiration” like APAC (Alberta Porcelain Artists Calgary)


Through “Paying it Forward like Dina Would”, Equilibrium School is sponsoring the Alberta Porcelain Artists of Calgary, a group of individuals who get together to make various beautiful porcelain creations. Our very own instructor, Toni Velasquez, is a club member and introduced it to our school. This immediately sparked interest and began Equilibrium’s journey with the APAC.

Alberta Porcelain Artists Calgary (APAC) is a non-profit organization created in 1976 to promote porcelain art for everyone to enjoy. APAC offers artists an opportunity to meet, learn, teach, and enjoy this very distinctive art form. Although anybody can paint at any age, most APAC members are in their 60s, 70s and 80s, and not only enjoy the art form but also the social interaction it provides. Art will always be a pastime that brings people together, no matter your age, ethnicity or outside interests.


In 2020, APAC was commissioned to create 200 individually hand-painted coasters for Equilibrium School. The coasters, specially hand-painted for Equilibrium School, are a composite design that evolved out of a project that APAC was doing as a group. This was done at the Confederation Park +55 Activity Centre, where people come to paint weekly.
This project was completed in isolation due to the COVID-19 restrictions at the time.

After the tremendous success of the hand-painted coasters, Equilibrium School decided to continue collaborating with the club through patronage to support APAC work. Through this patronage, our school hopes to give the talented artists of the APAC a platform to share their beautiful artwork beyond the little community of artists who share a love for an unusual art form

In 2023, APAC was commissioned to create 100 individually hand-painted mugs to accompany the hand-painted coasters.
