I find myself visiting and revisiting the art & ecology site on artsednet.
Last time, I took the time to read the teacher story about a courtyard
project at Lima West Middle School. Those art students are involved in an
ongoing collaborative project that will bring a lasting change to their
community. They took art out of the classroom and out of the picture
frame and addressed a need in the community. Talk about making art
meaningful! I'm sure there are lots of other art teachers who help their
students address environmental and social issues through their art in all
kinds of ways, in that art classroom and out. How do you do it?
Anybody have any ideas?
