Led by artist Michelle Sound, these two kits include video demonstrations of Indigenous and Métis art practices, plus discussions of how contemporary Indigenous artists are using traditional materials, techniques, and forms in new ways. Michelle Sound is Swan River First Nation Cree and Red River Métis born and raised in Coast Salish territory. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Simon Fraser University, School for the Contemporary Arts, and her Master of Applied Arts from Emily Carr University Art + Design.
Embroidery, Beading and Tufting Grade K-7
In this kit, Michelle Sound introduces the techniques of embroidery, beading, and caribou fur tufting, and students will create their own artwork incorporating these three techniques using burlap, beads and yarn. Supplies include pre-cut squares of burlap, a selection of yarn colours, multicoloured beads, and beading needles.
The Drum as Art Grade 4-7
In this kit, Michelle Sound demonstrates how to make a drum from deer hide, and how in her own art practice she uses the drum form as a canvas for painting. Students will then paint their own drum designs with acrylic paint on canvas. Supplies include pre-cut squares of primed canvas, acrylic paint, and paint brushes.
CHINESE ART: Then and Now Grades 4-7
In this kit, students will learn the history of Chinese calligraphy and painting, and how contemporary Canadian artists are drawing on their Chinese heritage in the creation of new artworks. Students will then learn basic brushstroke techniques and be guided through painting a landscape painting. Supplies include ink, watercolour paper and paint brushes.
