ART FOR TEACHERS: Provincial Pro-D Day Workshop
Friday, October 19, 2018, 9:30am – 3:00pm
This full day workshop begins with a gallery tour followed by a creativity-packed day of classroom-friendly art projects inspired by the work of exhibition artists Wen-Li Chen and Xiaojing Yan. These two artists explore how their cultural heritage has influenced and informed who they are today, and the inevitable struggle of maintaining traditions in the face of changing circumstances such as migration, colonization, and technological change. Includes all art materials, lesson plans and light refreshments (lunch not included). $45 per person, pre-registration required.
