Trevor will work with students at the school every Friday from January to May 2014, and collaboratively, the group will co-create a large sun mask carving to display at the school.
At this early stage in the project, students have already had the opportunity to work on pencil sketching, experience traditional forms of wood working, and experiment with their own interpretations and creativity. As the project continues, students will document their experiences and reflections through writing and an online photo journal.
What an authentic way to connect students to their local community as well as celebrate traditional art forms and ways of knowing. Visit the school’s blog to watch the project unfold. You can also see some of Trevor Hunt’s stunning art work here. Thanks to ArtStarts, the BC Arts Council and the Province of BC for their financial contribution to this wonderful project.
