"Janvier-esqe" Art Work
Last November one student asked a question about the mosaic artwork on the floor in Ford Hall at Roger's Place. Since then we have visited Ford Hall and done an extensive inquiry into the life and works of artist Indigenous artist Alex Janvier with Mabyn Grinde as our guide! Today she brought an art project to encourage the students to create their own "Janvier-esqe" work of art. They began with a place; a connection to their home and what colours and memories come when they think of that place. From there the colours and patterns began to take shape! Their art is VERY unique to each of them...and if you know these students, you would agree! They did an excellent job! We will be mounting these and proudly displaying them in our school halls!
