This fall we invite grades 5–8 classes to take part in a synchronous and interactive school program based on the exhibition Humour Me. Caricature is a powerful art form that uses exaggeration and humour to convey social and political meaning. Focusing on critical literacy and media analysis, students will practice decoding historical caricature and contemporary media to identify underlying messages, values, intended audience and their own bias. This program has strong curriculum links to the arts, social studies, history, geography and language. The school program lasts one hour.
Fee: $45/class (*Limestone District School Board is supporting their classes by covering this fee.)
This school program is made possible through the generous support of the Lloyd Carr-Harris Foundation and the student docent training program is supported by the Iva Speers Fund for Art Education.
