This week, Art for AIDS International has been welcomed as a guest in four art classrooms with Lakehead Schools in Thunder Bay, Canada. On Tuesday morning we met the students at Hammerskjold Collegiate & Vocational Institute (high school). After sharing some stories and talking a bit about the ways that art can have social impact, students were left to think about these new thoughts before returning on Wednesday to create some original art work together.
Also on Tuesday and Wednesday, we spent some time with students at Superior Collegiate & Vocational Institute (high school). It was a pleasure to be a part of their Native Art and Craft Programme. Art for AIDS International truly appreciates the opportunity to reach engage young minds at such an important stage of life.
Half of the day on Thursday and Friday found us at Sir Winston Churchill Collegiate & Vocational Institute(high school). Students had a lot of fun playing with finger paints. We look forward to showing you the results of their creative play very soon.
Our final stop this week was at Westgate Collegiate & Vocational Institute (high school). We hope that the new ideas that we all shared with each other will make a meaningful impact on each one of the students involved in the workshop. Many thanks to Jason Pilot and the art teachers at Lakehead Schools for welcoming us back this year.
