Tellings Stories: Narratives of Nationhood

Tellings Stories: Narratives of Nationhood | HCS Fine Arts | Scoop.it
4,000 works of art & 400 lesson plans centered on Canadian history and heritage, identity, culture, geography, and politics - for Canadian teachers, students K-12, and public.
HCS Learning Commons's insight:

Looking at artistic voices represented across Canada, it becomes clear that our identity - who and what we are as individuals, communities, regions, and a country - can never be told in just one story. The cultures, histories, and relationships among Canadian communities have always been changing. The art that has come out of this ever-changing reality are all pieces of a broader dialogue, offering glimpses of the possibilities for many different identities. In Telling Stories: Narratives of Nationhood, a diversity of art by Canadian artists is the medium for the exploration of Canadian history and heritage, identity, culture, geography, and politics.

The Incredible Art Department is for art teachers, art students, parents, homeschoolers and artists. IAD includes information on art jobs, art careers, art schools, art education, lesson plans, visual art news, and art resources.
HCS Learning Commons's insight:

Welcome to The Incredible Art Department. This site began in late 1994 as a showcase for Ken Rohrer and his elementary art students in a school in Indianapolis, Indiana. This site was the second educational website in Indiana. The first was a 5th grade classroom in Brookview Elementary. My district was not ready for this exposure so they told me to remove the site. Instead of completely folding it, he decided to open it up to the world. The response was phenomenal. I received 8,555 visitors the first year. Now the site has received millions of visitors. Art jobs, teaching resources, lesson plans and tools, as well as links abound in this great site.
