The Art of Nature: A Student Exhibition
January 09 to May 02, 2015
Museum London invited elementary and secondary students (K-12) in the Thames Valley District School Board and London District Catholic School Board to reflect on the theme of "nature" and create artwork in a variety of media. Teachers were encouraged to explore environmental issues, such as climate change, deforestation, resource depletion and endangered species with their students and make this a cross-curricular learning experience incorporating the visual arts, language and social studies. Outdoor sports, camping trips, and family pets also served as inspiration for students to create art that had personal meaning.
All students submitted a brief artist statement along with their artwork. All submissions were juried and approximately 120 pieces of student art are included in the exhibition. Museum London is committed to fostering partnerships with the wider education community and promoting opportunities for students to learn through the visual arts.
All the students, parents and teachers who contributed to The Art of Nature will be invited to a reception to be held at Museum London on Thursday, February 12.
