Come if you can. I will be making a short cameo appearance.
Sunday, October 27th, 2pm. Leith Church
A Special Offer to Canadian Art or History Teachers.
I will provide 10 books free of charge (plus free regular post to anywhere in Canada and any additional books at wholesale discount) for a selected teacher who sends me a 100-200 word proposal on how you and your students would follow Tom Thomson as he goes up north to experience his last spring in Algonquin Park.
In return for the books, I would like input on how to develop an educational unit on Tom Thomson that enables students to experience his life as it was in 1917 and explores how his art impacts us as Canadians. As part of this unit, I would like to use the book, its journal entries and his real-time tweets as part of the learning.
Deadline is midnight February 20th, 2019.
P.S. I reserve the right to choose any proposal that suits my fancy. Knowing me, there is a good chance I will choose the very first one that comes in. So if you want to increase your chance, better get to writing that email now. Finally, I am sorry I can’t give everyone free books. If you are not selected but are still keen, I can work out for you a good price.
Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Wishing you and your family the finest of times during the holiday season.
Please follow me once again this year as I complete my final canvases in Toronto and return to Algonquin Park for my final days in July 1917.
