Another trip to the museum for school children, Canadian Art Museum. A picture book about historical Canadian artists from coast to coast, see if you can remember which artist did the paintings that Gutierrez illustrated or guess which province the painting represents.
http://www.picturescape.ca is a wonderful resource for this book, all the answers to the paintings and more. If you have any questions about any of the art or artists Gutierrez tells all, there are even museum tour ideas.
Emily Carr – “Big Raven” 1931
Alex Colville – “Horse and Train”
Tom Thompson – “The Jack Pine” 1916
These are just a few paintings that you may observe in Picturescape.
