Join us to uncover the complexity of the coastline. Students are immersed into the ideas of interconnection, ecosystems, water cycles, and shoreline wildlife, inspired by Coastal indigenous works. Using drawing, watercolour, pastel and collage students develop individual  mixed-media works that contribute to an ecosystem project.

Wednesday: October 2020 – June 23, 2021

Imagine, balance, construct, and combine materials to engineer an exciting mini city. Students learn about physics and connecting techniques they can use to support their structures. Elements of colour, pattern, and recycled materials encourage students to get creative. Focus can be adjusted- perhaps a realistic, futuristic, space-age or environmentally sensitive city could fit your curriculum.

Curriculum Tie-ins; Art Education, Social Studies, Geography, Math

Tuesdays | October 2020 – June 22, 2021 

Discover the Gallery’s Permanent Art Collections, focusing on handmade prints by First Nation artists. Using real artworks from the collection, students will make comparisons of the different techniques and elements of meaning in the works. The class will consider the significance of the ecosystem and environment which are represented in the selected First Nations works. Students will create their own art piece inspired by their connection with the environment and explore how different mediums work together.

Curriculum Tie-ins: Indigenous Studies, Ecology/Environment, Art Education
