Taras Shevchenko: 200th Celebration Through Art

In 2014, as recognition and celebration of 200 years since Shevchenko’s birth, MPUE engaged 5 Artists to lead an art project that would span all grade levels throughout the 12 English Ukrainian Bilingual Program (EUBP) schools in Manitoba. Students worked under the guidance of the commissioned artists to collaborate and create a child’s interpretation of Taras Shevchenko’s significant contributions to Ukrainian cultural identity. The children were asked to base their images on the 3 different themes:

•  Kindergarten to Grade 2/3 - Taras Shevchenko's Birthplace

•  Grade 3 to 5/6 - An Illustration Based on Taras Shevchenko's Writings

•  Grade 6 to 8/9 - What Taras Shevchenko Stood For

The artist worked with the individual schools, students and teachers and expressed the work in the fabric based medium of their choice. It is our hope that this opportunity for artistic expression by the children has reinforced their understanding of Taras Shevchenko as an important influence on Ukrainian culture.
