On March 8, In-Definite Arts joined up with the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium’s ‘Jube Classroom’ to share about art and disability in the context of our latest group exhibition, Signature Styles. IDAS staff met with a busy class of grade-one students from Douglasdale Elementary to explore the In-Definite Arts Permanent collection and engage in hands-on-learning about: art and the five senses, art and storytelling, shapes and patterns, and more. Students played ‘I Spy’, created drawings, wove a story chain and participated in group discussions about how to make, view and enjoy art.
Special thanks are extended to Tarryn Koll, Marketing & Development Specialist at the Jubilee, for facilitating IDAS’ exhibition and connecting us with the Jubilee’s education programmer Karen Youngberg. The IDAS team looks forward to returning to the ‘Jube Classroom’ later in March to interact with a new class of grade two students. You can continue to see the exhibition “Signature Styles” on display in the Jubilee’s lower gallery through March 24. The closing reception will by March 23 from 6 to 8pm, and all are welcome.

The Jube Classroom is part of a variety of community programs presented by the Jubilee to enhance curriculum learning for local schools. Through this program students of all ages can spend a day, a few days or even a week at the Jubilee learning about everything from math to science, language to literature. School groups can also explore the Jubilee’s visual art collection while enjoying a backstage tour, hands-on art-making activities, and theatre demonstrations of the lighting and sound equipment.
