After School Art Club at Lord Nelson
Aboriginal Group of Seven were a famous group of artists who were brought
together by Daphne Odjig. On Thursdays
at Lord Nelson, through to Spring Break, Artists and teacher Ms. Lafournaise
works with a group of over 30 students in grades 4-6 to create art inspired by
the group. Jackson Beardy has been an
inspiration. The program has been funded by Manitoba Tourism,
Culture, Sport and Consumer Protection. The program is open to all students.
In this student project, made of pastel,
marker and tempera paint, you can see
the influence of Plains Indigenous culture and Asian Art. Children looked at the astrological symbol of
the horse because of Chinese and Vietnamese New Year and the Year of the Horse.
The colorful horses are hybrid: truly representative of the multi-cultural group of families at Lord Nelson School.
