The Group of Seven and the National Film Board of Canada have been regular subjects on this blog in the past. It is fitting to bring them both back into the fold with this lovely little film about Arthur Lismer. His interest in teaching through art is quite fantastic.

Lismer reminds us that creativity and inspiration are an integral element in the development of children.
