TEACHERS EDITION - Visual Arts Guide


“TEACHERS EDITION: Haudenosaunee Culture through Art & Design: Book 1” 

[ISBN: 978-1-7773156-1-0]

This Ontario curriculum-based teacher’s companion to our colouring book can be used by any teacher, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, anywhere, to help their students learn about the core Elements of Design that make up Visual Art. This TEACHERS EDITION comes with all the pages of the colouring book, as well as 85 activities and a Mohawk language lexicon, that promote visual arts learning for grades 1 through 8. 

This publication corresponds with the Ontario curriculum (version 2009) for visual arts teaching, but we encourage its use for any teacher with a desire to include Indigenous content in their classroom!

I would like to thank my sister Theda Brant, B.Ed. OCT, and my mother Terrylynn Brant, M.Sc., B.Ed., B.A., for their guidance in creating lesson plans that follow the Ontario curriculum’s Elements of Design.

"Visual arts are a part of the core curriculum of every elementary school across Ontario. I have put out into the universe this desire to see Indigenous content being used to teach basic art concepts; to have Indigenous art normalized as an important part of Art in Canada, the world, and our need to teach young people everywhere early about the importance of inclusion, authenticity, and to appreciate the work that goes into authentic art and the harm that the appropriation of it can do."
