A Visit to Fern Avenue Public School

This morning we had the pleasure of  visiting Fern Avenue Public School. We spent some time with Mrs. Nitsis’s grade 1/2 class and presented Canadian artist, Lawren Harris. The students learned about his life and career and his time as a member of the Group of Seven.

The students used soft pastels to create multi coloured backgrounds. Next they used fan brushes and learned how to make pine trees with a dusting of snow on their branches. We finished with paint pens to fill our sky with falling snow. It was so much fun to work with such enthusiastic students!
