Learn about printing, drawing, or architecture right in your classroom! Led by trained staff and volunteer Docents, each program opens with a story to introduce a concept which the students then explore with hands-on activities geared to their grade level. These programs have been used already in many of our regional schools and have met with great success. Students come away from our sessions with a heightened appreciation for art and some wonderful pieces to put on display at home and at school.
• Printing and Imagination
o K – 4 The focus of this lesson is on using one’s imagination while making art. Students will read a story which looks at the use of imagination. They will then follow this up with activities that allow them to explore three different printing methods to translate what lies in their imaginations to the visible world.
o 5 – 7 The object of this lesson is to have students explore their visions of Canada through two methods of printing. Students begin by listening to poetry and viewing images from Canadian authors and artists. They will then use their imaginations to transcribe their own concepts of Canada into works of art.
o K – 7 This lesson is intended to have children and their teacher open their minds to art and creativity. The grade-appropriate book and the activities which follow will encourage teachers and students to leave behind the “I can’t draw” mentality and learn to express themselves through drawing. Discover how enjoyable making marks and experimenting with art can be.
o K – 3 The focus of this lesson is to introduce the students to architecture and the art of building structures. Through interactive exercises and hands-on application, students will utilize their imagination and learning to create their own architectural models to take home with them.
o 4 – 7 The focus of this lesson is on designing and building small scale architectural structures. Students will learn about different building styles and then will use what they have learned and their imaginations to design and create buildings in two and three dimensions.
