During our unit on National Identity in January/February, students learned about symbols representing Canada. One symbol we learned about was art created by famous Canadians, and how they represent Canada around the world. We learned about Canadian artist, Ted Harrison. Ted Harrison is one of Canada’s most known artists. His paintings of nature in the Yukon are recognized around the world. After studying his artwork, learning about warm and cool colours, and nature in the Yukon, we set out to create our own Ted Harrison inspired art. Here are some of the results!

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
