Greg Curnoe: Create a “Canadian Identity” Wheel

Independent Student Learning Activity

Create a “Canadian Identity” Wheel

Grades 6 to 12

Using Greg Curnoe’s art as a starting point, this independent activity will examine the concept of Canadian identities and the expression of these identities in words and images. Through this exercise, students will think critically about what it means to be a Canadian and how they can best communicate these qualities in visual designs. Using a shape like the wedges of colour in Curnoe’s work Large Colour Wheel, 1980, students will create and contribute to a powerful visual image of Canadian identity.
