Artist-in-the-schools Online Learning with Virginia Barter

As an indigenous (Métis/Cree) artist, I have been working in partnership with the Toronto District School Board now for several years, providing learning support in the classroom.  My artistic practice is multi-disciplinary. My focus is to support teachers and students in understanding Métis history and culture through filmmaking, storytelling, music, drama, and traditional crafts and visual artforms. 

During this COVID19 time, with the help of the TDSB Indigenous Education Centre, many artists are adapting their programs to the new online reality.  All my current programs – covering all grade levels – can be adapted for online learning.
