This program explores the ways human activities impact the environment and introduces students to artists who address issues of environmental sustainability in their work. After exploring Gairloch Gardens and discussing its transformation from a natural state to a landscaped public garden, students will propose and draw structures that promote sustainable land use through technological intervention, then build maquettes of these works using a variety of sculpture materials.
The Arts (Visual Arts); Canadian and World Studies (Civics and Citizenship, Politics in Action)
