Slide into Floral Design with Google Slides
February 28 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ESTFree Funded by Google Canada
A Google Canada Co-Taught Lesson
Join us on National Floral Design Day for a special lesson with Alberta Educator and fabric designer Carrie Okemaw. Using Google Slides, students will learn how to design elements from Carrie’s art, such as 4-petal and 5-petal flowers as well as blueberries and other significant indigenous symbols from Cree culture.
Carrie will be there to guide you and your students every step of the way and explain the meaning behind each symbol. By the end of the lesson, you’ll have a deeper appreciation for the art of floral design and an understanding of the cultural significance behind indigenous art.
In addition to learning more about design and Cree symbols, students will also be exploring math concepts as they work with transformation techniques like reflections, rotations and mirroring. They will also look closer at the colour wheel as they decide whether to use warm or cool colours, and experiment with complementary colours to add to their design.
Join us at 1pm Eastern on February 28th for this co-taught lesson celebrating digital design and Cree culture on National Floral Design Day. Thank you to Google Canada for providing funding for this lesson allowing it to be free to educators and students, and thank you to Carrie Okemaw for sharing her wonderful art and wisdom!
Whether you’re a seasoned designer or just starting out, this lesson is perfect for anyone who loves creativity and culture. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to learn from an Alberta educator who is also a talented designer, blooming in the fabric industry.
This lesson is ideal for Grades 4-6 classes. That said, older students will also find it enjoyable, and younger classes can still participate, but teachers may need to pause more frequently to ensure all students are able to keep up with the instruction.
