Earth & Space Systems: Starship Studio
Grade 6

At the Galleries

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Experience art in the great outdoors! This full-day workshop connects students to their natural surroundings through a guided exploration of Gairloch Gardens, its site-specific artworks and a hands-on art activity. Over the course of the day, students will use traditional, found and recycled art materials to create artworks they can take home with them. Programs may be adapted to integrate curriculum content from your current classroom studies on request.

In this program, students will create a Starship Studio in Oakville Galleries' Education Centre. After making sculptures of the sun, planets and moons, students will build a three-dimensional map of the solar system in Gairloch Gardens. Indoors, they will draw plans for a ship that could sustain extended travel in outer space, and make sculptures of the technological tools and devices needed to explore the solar system.
