design, layout, development, photography, content, hosting
in 2005, davej created and taught a jr. high art course as part of the university of calgary’s summer success gifted education program.
exploring art in north america ran for two weeks and touched on historical and modern forms of art originating in north america including west coast and plains native art, and graffiti.
students investigated artists, techniques, styles, and the motivations behind the expression of various works.
the goal of this project was to collect the thoughts, works, and photographs from the course and document some of the process for posterity.
each student received the website on a cd at the end of the course and it was also available online for parents and families to explore and enjoy.
