Let's Create Aboriginal Art!

In social studies we have been learning about Communities in Canada from 1780–1850.  We have been discussing Aboriginal people in Canada and decided to study some Aboriginal art.  Students were shown a variety of pieces of art and began to think about them and develop an awareness about the meanings, messages and symbolism present in the pieces of art.  We began to discuss connections that we could see between what we have been learning about Canadian Aboriginal people, and the pieces of art that were viewing.


After viewing Aboriginal art, we decided that we wanted to make our own!  In our discussion we talked about how we could use natural objects to create different depths, textures, shapes, forms and lines

When we brought back the items to class we began to practice using our objects and paint to create a variety of effects in our artist's books.  

Check back next week for our final pieces of art!
