Artists for the earth

Learning through art

Environmental Art and Education

Art education provides students the opportunity to acquire new skills, discover their creativity and the freedom of self-expression.  Studies demonstrate the importance of art in education: improved self-confidence and positive academic, social and emotional outcomes.

Environmental art educates students about what is happening to the earth and its inhabitants. Students can be invited to work on projects that represent local environmental issues or those impacting people and communities around the world.  Projects can take many forms: a short film, a community mural, a poetry contest, to cite a few.  

Art creates community, bringing people together, opening space for dialog and the exchange of ideas. It can help foster consensus about the environment among young people and, in turn, inspire the will to take action for positive change.
