Description

This set of art projects incorporates painting, oil pastels, printmaking and carving to study six different artists in Canada who identify as First Nations or Métis through creating a piece of art inspired by George Littlechild, Bill Reid, Dana Standinghorn, Jason Carter, Benjamin Chee Chee and Leah Dorian.

This inspiring product includes:

  • six different art projects (each one can usually be completed within a few hours from start to the end of clean-up).
  • complete lesson plans with step-by-step instructions with modifications to differentiate for your students (or your available supplies).
  • photographs of student examples.
  • reflection pages for students in English and French.
  • instructions to minimize prep work and clean up.
  • art projects designed for the "not-an-art-teacher" generalist.

Take a look at the preview for a materials list.

Two of these projects include studying the work of the artist from their books. While the lessons can be done without these books, they certainly enhance the quality of the lessons. If you cannot find the exact titles, any work illustrated by these artists can work (and the books make a wonderful addition to any collection).

  • What is the Most Wonderful Thing About Horses? by Richard van Camp
  • The Giving Tree: A Traditional Métis Story retold by Leah Dorian.
  • Their books are available in most public libraries or online.

The painting project inspired by Metis Artist Leah Dorian can be found in our store for free. If you like the style of these art lessons, you should check out the rest of our products that combine art with other subject areas.
