Grovedale Primary School and Grovedale West Primary Sustainable strategies workshop with Merinda Kelly, 2019

Connecting with the environment and each other—sustainable strategies: a virtual workshop

28 October

Victorian Curriculum levels 4 to 9

A National Children’s week program

Challenge your students to think about sustainability, connectivity and the visual arts by collecting and upcycling a range of everyday human-made or natural objects that have been found, given away or discarded for recycling. In these workshops, students will be introduced to the idea of collecting sounds for soundscapes and through collaborative play and experimentation, students will arrange their collections to develop unique artworks to form connected compositions.

Facilitated by Deakin University lecturers, Merinda Kelly and Fiona Phillips, these workshops will reflect on National Children’s Week 2020 theme: ‘Children have the right to choose their own friends and safely connect with others’.

There are three sessions available on Wednesday 28 October between 9.30am to 2.30pm.
