The Way the River Flows: Our Blue Footprint
October 21 – November 27
12 workshops available (2 classes per workshop)
Inspired by the work of exhibiting artist Anong Migwans Beam, our BIG IDEA looks at the value of water in First Nations culture and history and the value of water to all Canadians.
During this program, students will gain an appreciation and understanding of the deep connections First Nations people have with their natural environment. Students will explore the idea of water as the interconnection among all living things
and the importance water holds in First Nations history and stories.
From a local to a global scale, we’ll explore our responsibility and role as a steward of the Earth and examine our Blue Footprint on this delicate and complex issue of conservation vs growth.
We’ll discuss the water-related challenges that face First Nations communities and the resulting well-being of our Canadian water resources.
In the studio, we will reflect on the practice of exhibiting artist Anong Migwans Beam and create a personal response to our environment using mixed media and print techniques.
Curriculum connections: Visual Arts, Language Arts, Drama, Social Studies, History.
Black History – Together We Rise
February 4 – March 26
15 workshops available (2 classes per workshop)
As part of a Global Community, we are continually building, transforming and understanding our identities as individuals and cultural groups. In this full-day, cutting edge Arts Infused workshop we examine our associations to diaspora and hybrid cultural identities through the multi-media, multi-cultured exhibition Together We Rise.
What challenges do we face as a Global Society and how does equity and equality play a role in our existing social framework? How do the media shape our vision of social cultures and identity?
In true SG style, we will examine, engage and respond to the artworks reflecting on our personal responses.
In the studio, students will use multimedia and printmaking techniques to create a unique visual response to the perceptions of culture and identity.
Curriculum connections: Visual Arts, Language Arts, Social studies, History, Drama.
