I am responding to the question, what approaches do you use to
teach about life-centered issues and ecological art? This can be found in
panel three of the section, "Conversations about Teaching Contemporary
Ecological Art"
I think it would be a wonderful idea to take your class to a
private
indian reservation. Students can experience and learn about different
cultures and the influence art has in these tribes. Ecological art holds
a great importance with the Native Americans. If children actually see
the significance art can have for different cultures, they might
reevaluate what art means to them and to their culture. Hopefully,
children will begin looking at art in a different way.
