About the Event
Contemporary Canadian Indigenous artists have produced three major schools of art. In this workshop, Victoria will help you discover Woodland art – its’ artists, traditions, imagery and style. We will spend time looking at and discussing the art and look at the role Norval Morrisseau played in the development of the style. We will look at the role of animals, the images of transformation and the meaning of symbols. Participants will have the opportunity to create a painting in the Woodlands style. (Suitable for Grades 3 to 8)
Note: Anyone is welcome to attend this workshop but it is geared towards teachers/educators and as such, will contain curriculum content.
