Classes at Home – Week 3
Our Art teacher, Mr. Sean-William Dawson, a professional artist himself, has asked the King’s Grade 7 and 8 Art class to produce their own original works in the style of the Canadian artist and illustrator, Mr. Rob Elliot. Mr. Elliot was in New York City during Hurricane Sandy and kept a visual diary of what he saw, felt, and experienced; and is now revisiting this concept with a new visual diary during COVID-19. Our Grade 7 and 8’s were asked to keep their own visual diary of their personal experience of COVID-19 as their Art assignment during Classes at Home. The highlight of their week was a Zoom call between the class and the artist they were basing their work on: Mr. Elliot. The class had a great time showing the artist their own work and discussing his work – a great experience for all! Our thanks to Mr. Dawson for this great assignment and for coordinating this meeting, and to Mr. Elliot for the generous gift of his time and insights.
