Place: Transformation and Change

Art and poetry are highlighted in this package allowing students to recognize the ever changing environment and how artists include this concept of transformation in their work.

This educator's package presents insightful information about Glenbow's collection of Historical, Modern and Contemporary Art. The information encourages students to examine artwork from the Glenbow Museum's collection and look carefully and critically in order to create dialogue and thoughtful discussions about the art, its purpose and how its role has evolved throughout the years.
