Indigenous Art and the Classroom
1-3pm, Friday January 25th
Join First Nation artists Cease and Senaqwila Wyss to learn more about Indigenous art, history and culture in Vancouver and how to incorporate it into your teaching. Explore how inquiry based, object led learning outside the classroom can support your delivery of the curriculum through engaging with Indigenous and Vancouver Biennale art works.
Meet at the Museum of Vancouver for this hands on, artist led session. A resource list compiled by the artists will be provided for you to take away.
The session will include walking through Vanier Park and spending time outside looking at the Welcome Figure and Paradise Has Many Gates so please wear warm and waterproof clothing and appropriate footwear.
$20 (100% of this fee goes to the artists)
After the workshop, admission to the Museum of Vancouver and their Haida Now exhibition is also offered at a discounted rate of $11.55 to workshop participants (usually Adult: $20.50). This exhibition is on until April 2020 and the museum offers a range of related school programming which could accompany a visit. Tickets must be purchased in advance via this page to take advantage of this price.
(If the weather is too wet then the session will happen mostly indoors at the Museum of Vancouver)
