Design Life: Exploring Society Through Art

Introduce learners to the design elements and artifacts of interior environments in Victorian Canada (or any people and era you care to explore) based on artwork that represents their world. Your secondary social historians view the art of Canadian painter Robert Harris to understand how interior design communicates social class. They create original paintings that express the time and culture they are studying. They then write descriptive poetry inspired by the paintings.
