Elementary school children visited the Agnes last week for the “A Space Within” program. Students in Grades 1–3 from Truedell Public School, Central Public School, Storrington Public School, and Winston Churchill Public School explored cultural identity through domestic interiors in the exhibition At Home: The Interior in Canadian Art.
In this 90-minute program, students spent time in the At Home exhibition and in the Studio. In the gallery, we introduced aspects of Canadian history and cultural diversity through the depicted interior spaces of various peoples, traditions and times. In the Studio, they explored block printmaking techniques while creating a unique print on fabric squares. Each square will be pieced together to form a final collaborative classroom quilt.
