Pirates: Adventures in Art
The curriculum of Pirates: Adventures in Art has been developed with consultants at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. The series covers the following, presented in an age-appropriate way, and emphasizes do-it-yourself possibilities.
The free-wheeling life of a pirate is a metaphor for art. As Leo shows us what it is to be a pirate, he is showing us what it is to be a creative person, too. Also, the ongoing threat of Conformia, who wants to stifle creativity, is met with the pirates' continuous resistance.
Kids are encouraged to put their work out there for others to see. Real-life examples will be introduced, such as Van Gogh, and children will learn that although his art went unrecognized in his own lifetime, he continued painting nonetheless, and today, his art is revered.
