About the Event
Indigenous Rock Paintings in Canada represents one of the oldest forms of artistic tradition. Rock art sites contain a variety of pictographs which represent activities or events that have taken place in that area. These artistic creations by Indigenous peoples have been discovered throughout all of Canada and on the rock cliffs lining many of Manitoba’s waterways. Renée will share her knowledge about the history of rock painting, share a few stories and assist participants with the creation of painted rocks based on Métis beaded flower patterns and a variety of Mandela and nature designs. (Suitable for all grades)
Note: Anyone is welcome to attend this workshop but it is geared towards teachers/educators and as such, will contain curriculum content.
Renée McGurry is a retired Indigenous educator who presently works as a workshop facilitator for the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba and Nelson Education. Through professional development, she has provided educators with the knowledge, support and resources needed to integrate Indigenous perspectives into classrooms, schools and division-wide programming.
