Vanishing Environment: Exploring Changes in Landscape

To discover the impact of urbanization on the environment, learners compare landscape paintings from the past with contemporary photographs, create found poems from descriptions of artwork, design backyard or public garden spaces, make posters to promote environmental citizenship and organize a coffee house to display them. Artwork attached is by Canadian painter Robert Harris, but work by local artists would adapt the series of activities to your region.
