Art in Action visited JK/SK classrooms where students were inspired by legendary Canadian artist Ted Harrison who made his home in the Yukon.
His love of the Canadian North is reflected in his iconic style of horizontal sections made up of brilliant colours.
Students also learned about the meaning, symbolism, and use of Inukshuks and worked with a wide variety of chaltek pastels, acrylic paint and collage materials to create their own great works of art in the style of Ted Harrison.
We are so fortunate to have The Arts Enrichment Program in our class this afternoon which is funded by the generous donations of Runnymede parents. MERCI BEAUCOUP! 😀 nous sommes des vrais artistes!! 🎨
