McMICHAEL FOR TEACHERS

“My students were taken in from the moment they got off the bus. The location was unique for the students I brought and they couldn’t wait to get inside. The displays were interesting and accessible to them. The instructor asked them challenging questions and worded them in such a way they really had to think about it. They loved the workshop on Haida Manga and produced both insightful and personal pieces that came together into a stunning display on the wall back at school. All around an excellent trip for my grade 6 class.”

 Ms. Myers, Hunter’s Glen Junior Public School, Grade 6. Participated in Gallery Tour: Stories of Our Land and Signature Studio: Haida Manga Studio
