Learning Video Series

The Learning & Engagement team has put together a series of video lessons that can be used by teachers for FREE in the classroom! The series of three videos are geared towards specific grades and can be used to support social studies, science, and art curriculum. Each interactive video is approximately 30 minutes in length and provides lots of opportunities to pause for discussion, directed activities, or to play games! You may also choose to compliment the lesson with an art making project by downloading the PDF lesson plan and material list. Note that each lesson may take up to 1 hour to complete.


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.

The Art of Our Relationships

Grades 2 – 5

Art is a connector between us, artists often use the theme of relationships as a subject of their work. What can art teach us about the questions we should ask ourselves to enhance our emotional intelligence & self-development?

The studio project uses mixed-media on watercolour to explore our different emotions and reinforce self-reflection.
