Grade 4&5 students in Mme. Lambert-Denis' and Mr. Fine's classes had the privilege of working with Philip Cote, an "Indigenous artist, activist, educator, historian and traditional wisdom keeper", this past November and December. As part of his Ancestral Teachings & Mentorship program, with facilitation by Withrow parent Sydney Grainger, he engaged students in online workshops which resulted in students using his painting style to create these incredible pieces of art!
To see all 40 pictures of our wonderful student artwork, please visit Philip Cote III’s Facebook page, posting Dec. 16.
