Global Settlement: Making Waves
Grade 8

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.

With a focus on contemporary artists concerned with the availability of safe water in their communities, students will learn about how the production of textiles impacts drinking water around the world. Over the course of the program, students will develop a series of prints on recycled denim flags to communicate their ideas about water-related issues in their everyday lives, and what they imagine a sustainable future to be.
