Spirit of the Lake

Grades 6 – 8

This workshop discusses the important issues of cottage country and colonization. Using the dynamic work of Will Kwan, we debate ethics of the planting and production of manoomin. Responsibility, balance, and relationships, generates critical conversations about land, histories, and reciprocity.

The studio project will use mixed media and painting techniques to create a finished landscape with meaningful messages of the importance of water and resources in Indigenous culture.

Your Order has Shipped

Grades 3 – 5

Understanding global supply has never been more relevant, students learn how products are produced and traded on a global scale. They discover the history of the movement of items and people from different locations around the world. This workshop offers a wide range of perspectives about the world’s interconnected systems.

The studio project uses an unusual starting point to create a mixed media artwork that intersects art with symbols of global trade, and references of Canadian identity.
