Artistic practice and creative thinking play a meaningful role in the development of our youth.
An interactive experience for young environmentalists and art appreciators. The workshop centres on the subject of water preservation and the responsibility we all have to appreciate, honour and protect our earth for future generations. Kim Wheatley will lead a fabric art and sculpture lesson that will culminate in the assembly of a community water quilt. Participants will also enjoy a performance by Miyeko Ferguson who will dance an original piece created in Orillia by acclaimed choreographer Jera Wolfe. Students will have the opportunity to engage with all three artists to ask questions and learn more about the art and ethics of water care.
