On March 7th, at 9:30 am, we are all invited to a live virtual session with the National Gallery of Canada (distance education program) called Indigenous Art Today.
"What is Indigenous art in Canada like today? Discover how Indigenous artists connect to tradition and invent new ways to make art."
Monday October 24th 9:00 am, our classes will get together to talk about stereotypes in Canada and how it negatively impacts people. There will also be a discussion about what we should expect from fellow Canadians. Students will also share inquiry questions they have for the next part of our project.
The video below will become live when we start today and will contain the recorded video after.
