Workshop Details
Title Taking it to the Street: Public Art Across the Curriculum
Year 2010/2011
Subject Area Arts
Audience Group Grade 6-12 Teachers
Available to other districts? Yes
Description Sponsored by the Vancouver School Board and Vancouver Biennale.

This cross-curricular, multi-grade, inquiry based project takes students to the Vancouver Biennale International Public Art installations to inject a sense of real purpose into curriculum studies. The workshop will be an introduction to: Openness – opening the mind to learning and the creation of understanding; reflection – background to the art and artist, sculpture in public places, developing a curriculum challenge and the focus of a guiding question; and creativity – students creation as an expression of learning and taking action.

Workshop presenters Tiana Blouin and Jessica Eguia developed a complete set of curriculum guides for ten Biennale installations in collaboration with the staff and students of King George Secondary and Vancouver Biennale. Four follow-up workshops will be offered to expand understanding and application of the curriculum.

Vancouver Biennale (VB) is an invitation to explore our lived world while developing BC PLOs and curriculum standards. Vancouver Biennale curriculum and lesson plans are designed to encourage active, engaged, inquiry based learning utilizing the 2009 - 2011 Vancouver Biennale installations. Moving curriculum topics into the community stimulates a sense of real inquiry for both teachers and students. Experiential learning touching on student knowledge, and multiple intelligences is at the core of Biennale curriculum and lesson plans. Our goal is to develop fully inclusive, cross curricular, inquiry based lesson plans that are easily accessible and fun to explore. All lesson plans have been field tested and offer suggested activities, curriculum challenges and creative learning expressions.
