February 11, 2022- West Coast First Nations Art Homeschool and Distance Learning (Age 10-12)
Date(s) - 11/02/2022
10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join other local home schoolers and distance learners in this special session of West Coast First Nations Art.
Check out the coastal First Nations art forms of petroglyph, basket weaving and carving. Stories, techniques and traditional artist preparation for creativity provide a context for traditional and contemporary art. Students will handle carvings from our education collection as part of a guided study of animal symbolism in West Coast art.
This is a 90-minute, in-person program that takes place at Nanaimo Museum.
This program is not suitable for anyone under the age of 10, including spectating siblings.
Pre-registration is required. Caregivers must be present at all times.
Proof of vaccination and masks are required for all learners and caregivers aged 12 and up. We highly recommend masks for younger students, as the Museum is a public and tourist attraction. Hand hygiene will be maintained by the learners, caregivers, guests, and staff members throughout your visit.
If you, your learner, or anyone in your household feel ill, are subject to a public health order to self-isolate, or are waiting for a COVID-19 test result, please do not attend this program.
