Creative Edge: Partnership with the Textile Museum of Canada

How can an examination of prints inspire the creation of your own artwork?

Program Description

Students will begin their day at the Textile Museum of Canada, learning about fabric applique and collage techniques through an exploration of Double Vision. Double Vision is an exhibition of wall hangings, drawings and collages by Inuit women artists in Qamanituaq (Baker Lake), Nunavut. 

Students will then head to Harbourfront Centre for lunch and participate in a half-day Textile Arts program that allows students to share their connections and responses to the exhibition. 

Program Objectives

By the end of the Creative Edge: Partnership with the Textile Museum of Canada program, students will:

  • Attend an art gallery/museum to view works of artists on display.
  • Use their observation skills to examine artwork as an opportunity to learn more about themselves and the artists.
  • Create a piece of art that responds to their experience in the gallery space.
