What’s so funny? Elementary Schools Analyze Caricature (grades 5–8)
School Program Booking Form
19 October–17 December 2021
10 am and 1 pm (excluding Friday afternoons)
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.
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.
Reflecting on Lii Zoot Tayr (Other Worlds) (Grades 9–12)
Online, Launching October 2021
This fall we invite students in grades 9–12 to reflect on the exhibition Lii Zoot Tayr (Other Worlds) an exhibition that features the work of five contemporary Métis artists. Students consider the themes present in the exhibition including in/visibility, unseen forces and the natural environment. This asynchronous school program is designed to enrich Indigenous arts education with connections to the curriculum.
