Educators participating in Indigenous Art Practices will learn more about Indigenous Arts, including visual, music, dance, and story. The three free online sessions will include opportunities to explore Indigenous art, related materials and educational resources. Educators will learn about practices and protocols to respectfully engage with Indigenous art and, by the end of the series, they will have drafted an initial plan to incorporate learning about Indigenous Arts in their classrooms and/or teaching practice.
Please note: As this is a learning series, we request that participants attend all three sessions when they register. Registration closes February 26.
Online Sessions take place at 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. (PT) on the following dates:
- March 1, 2023

Session 1: Participants will learn about history and current practices of Indigenous art, as well as ways to respectfully and creatively engage with Indigenous art in their educational practice.
Session 2: Participants will work together in groups to explore art pieces and related materials and begin to sketch out ideas for educational activities that might involve them.
