Exploring the Arts: Arts Day 2023

Tihmily Li, Communications Officer
Oftentimes, our perception of art can be constrained into very narrow ideas of art styles and practices. Perhaps you would have never thought that you could pick up a hair clip and water bottle to create a puppet skit with these ready-made objects. Or perhaps you haven’t considered how dancing reconnected your physical self with your emotional innerworld. That’s the beauty of Greenwood’s Arts Day: it provides a safe space to explore and expand your definitions of art and how you express yourself. 

On October 26, Arts Day began with a Junior Greenwood Mic to get everyone in the creative mood. Then, more than 20 arts professionals from various artistic practices hosted various workshops for our Grades 7 to 10 students. The workshops gave students an introduction to the art form and a chance to try it out. Students could choose two workshops from a diverse list,  including commercial photography, dance, improv comedy, hand lettering, circus skills and zombie makeup – just to name a few.

Later in the afternoon, students enjoyed a musical performance by the Sultans of String in the gym. We hope that Arts Day gave the students a chance to explore their artistic side and perhaps learn about a new art form that they will enjoy. 

Thank you to Ms. Borden for organizing the day.

We acknowledge with gratitude the Ancestral lands upon which our main campus is situated. These lands are the Ancestral territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinabek and the Wendake. The shared responsibility of this land is honoured in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty and as settlers, we strive to care for the land, the waters, and all creatures in the spirit of peace. We are responsible for respecting and supporting the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. When away from this campus we vow to be respectful to the land by protecting and honouring it. We will create relationships with the people and the land we may visit by understanding the territories we enter and the nations who inhabit them.
