Interactions in the Environment: Art Ecosystem
Grade 7

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.

Using recycled and natural materials, students will use their knowledge of ecosystems to collaboratively create a large-scale model of Gairloch Gardens that explores interactions between the organisms living in the gardens and their environment. Using the model to demonstrate how ecosystems work, students will then film a documentary video in which they will perform their scientific findings for the camera.
