Arts for the Earth!

This morning I came across this amazing education program, titled “Arts for the Earth.” This initiative strives to teach sustainability and environmental education through the arts, as well as develop more arts-based environmental curricula for all educators to use in their classrooms!

Their website page titled, “Incorporating Environment-Based Art in Schools and After School Programs” contains a wealth of ideas and multiple lesson plans supporting environmental education through multiple art disciplines (studio art, music, drama, writing).  I particularly enjoyed Ashley Schopieray’s lesson plan concerning “Green Art” and recycling. While she proposed that this project is suitable for grades 9-12, I believe the lesson could be easily adapted for younger grades as well.

Happy browsing! 🙂
