This is response to a inquiry question from the Art and Ecology web site.
The question is How can we make one time or brief art experiences relevent
in some kind of ongoing way for students? One way would be to have a class
go to the Arizona Historical Society to see early Tucson and southern
Arizona. We would get copies of some of the photos that were put up and
take them back to the classroom and put them up so the students could look
at them when ever they wanted to. We could then have a discussion on how
the area looked and what kind of vegetation was in the photos and if it is
still here or not. We could take them with us to a field trip to a nursery
and use them as a part of reference to find out which plants require little
or no water.
