Students in Grades 4-8 at White Woods Public School recently explored Indigenous art styles and artists the week leading up to and including Truth and Reconciliation week.
While learning about Indigenous art styles, students received teachings from Marilyn Armstrong, a White Woods PS teacher, Ojibwe artist, and Nipissing First Nation member, who shared with students her knowledge and journey of art.
Students studied Ojibwe artists and their work before taking their inspiration to their blank canvas. Under the guidance of Armstrong, students increased their appreciation and understanding of aspects of Indigenous culture.
In addition to creating art and learning about Indigenous culture, students participated in an oral presentation on an Indigenous tradition or custom.
