LANDSCAPE PAINTING STUDIO

GRADES JK – 12

Starting with a close look at nature and discussion of various cultural concepts of landscape, this studio takes a modernist approach emphasizing an emotional reaction to the land. Students will start from an initial compositional study and move to a final painting, exploring colour gradation and space in the process and learning about painting perspective, identifying a focal point, and working with a palette inspired by nature.

STORYTELLERS & IMAGE-MAKERS ARTMAKING STUDIO

GRADES 1 – 8

This studio focuses on the rich tradition of Indigenous storytelling, in particular the connection between the natural and spiritual worlds. Students will be encouraged to look at and creatively respond to visual patterns found in nature while reflecting on their personal relationship to the world around them. This program was developed in collaboration with Don Chrétien, an Ojibwe artist, designer, and educator who is strongly inspired by the work of Indigenous artist Norval Morrisseau.

HAIDA MANGA STUDIO

GRADES 1 – 12

Developed in collaboration with Haida artist and author Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, this studio explores the aesthetic and narrative function of the formline as seen in artworks of the Northwest Coast in combination with popular manga cartooning techniques. Students will be encouraged to contemplate and creatively respond to an important moment in their own lives inspired by Michael Nicoll’s artwork and creative process.

MAPPING LANDSCAPES WATERCOLOUR STUDIO

GRADES 7 – 12

Developed in collaboration with John Hartman—an Ontario-based artist known for his layered landscape paintings—this virtual watercolour studio invites students to investigate the notion of a cultural landscape and to create their own personal responses to the land while investigating its geography and history.

Curriculum Connections: VA, CWS
