TDSB 2022 Student exhibition
In 2022, the McMichael worked with a total of 95 students from 4 classes at 3 schools across the Toronto District School Board. From May – June students met once a week for 5 weeks, working in-person in the classroom and virtually with McMichael Educators, guest artists and Elders. Participants met for one final 6th session onsite at the McMichael for a day of exploration, viewing the galleries collection and current exhibitions and artmaking together. Artwork created by students during the final two weeks of the program can be seen below. This project encouraged students to reflect and visually represent an important personal experience in their lives, some of the students have included an artist statement along with their painting.
