Art, McDermid Community School


For my last lesson with the grade 7/8’s at McDermid Community School, I was given the opportunity to teach another art lesson. Based on the artist Leah Dorion, I had the students create their own art that told an Indigenous story. It is important to attach artists to projects in the classroom so that the students are able to have visual examples. It also sparks their creativity in a way that can inspire them to create art that connects to them personally. After all, students will not enjoy the process of creating art if they do not have any motivations to do so. Overall, it was a great way to end my time at McDermid School and cannot wait to continue my journey in becoming a teacher.
