This Educators’ Guide was written to accompany guided tours of the exhibition, but it can be readily used in classrooms in conjunction with images on an extensive website. It investigates the paintings of Saskatoon’s most famous abstract painter throughout his 60-year career. After exploring a wide variety of artistic styles, he began producing purely abstract work in the 1960s. Activities introduce students to the history of abstraction and provide many fun ways to make abstract art.

Activities are divided into two main thematic units, Lands and People. Students can learn about landscape art and portraiture, symbols, stereotypes, oral traditions and identity.
