Obviously you can’t change the curriculum, but you can take the objectives and go to the web site called The Heart of Canadian Art put together by a Canadian teacher. There, you will probably be inspired by the resources, suggested lesson plans, lists of art galleries big and small in Canada and Roxanne Morley Anderson’s enthusiasm for art and kids. Give it a try and see if you can’t get you and your students out of the winter doldrums.
The link is in the education section of my links list on this page. Have fun!
