First Nation Cultural Arts
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In this workshop participants will learn about traditional First Nation art forms, the original art techniques of the land. We will be having a discussion on how to properly represent First Nation arts opportunities in the classroom. Participants will have an opportunity to examine and watch demonstrations of different art techniques while learning about the relationship First Nation people have with the land. Participants will also learn about and have a chance to help with the collecting, cleaning and preparations of natural materials for art. Finally, we will have an opportunity to do a couple art activities that can be taken back to the classroom to do with the students. As we do the art activities I will be showing different variations for different abilities. We will be working with real animal parts and plants.

Drama Productions: From Zero to Hero-The Second Step (No Experience Required)
Do you ever wonder what it would take to build a successful drama/musical theatre program from the ground up? Have you ever thought you’d love to do something like this but are worried you lack the knowledge, skills or experience? If so, this session is for you! Come learn from someone. Prior to changing school divisions, I built my previous school’s drama program from the ground up, and I'm here to show you how to do the same thing! This session includes a how-to seminar covering a wide variety of topics, as well as break out sessions for networking and problem solving so feel free to bring obstacles which you are facing. Bring a notepad/device to take notes and pictures as the day progresses and an email that we can share our Google Drive Folder with. The day will start with an overview of the following: how our program was built over 6 years and how you can do the same, budgeting & timelines, costume/set/prop design & creation, ticket sales, and creating a culture of success. Don't worry if you could not attend last year, there will be a brief overview AND you will be given access to all documents from last year's session and this year's session as well.
