EDEL 302 Art Definitions & other Resources


Our in class Art Definitions according to our brainstorming ideas in groups….pretty interesting outcomes.

The Dot by Peter Reynolds

Excellent Resource for ART

We also watched an interesting video worth using as resource in the classroom.  It can be accessed through Scholastic on DVD or book.  However, the book can be bought at Amazon or an online version is available too.  I also found it on YouTube and worth the watch.

Here are those links:

7 Generations* is an epic, 4-book graphic novel series that spans three centuries and seven generations. The central character in the series is Edwin. Edwin, an Aboriginal teenager, must learn of his family’s past if he is to have any future. The impact of his journey of discovery, and the revelation that follows, will change his life.

Indian Residential School Claims


Attending Indian Residential Schools was mandatory for many Aboriginals and over 150,000 Aboriginal children were separated from their families and communities because of Canada’s policies. Canada and various churches operated Residential Schools across the country for over a century. Approximately 80,000 former students survive today.

If you are a survivor you may be entitled to compensation.
