Working on environmental challenges through a collage

 1. School/Organization, where the practice is collected:
Nordseter School

2. Description
The project looks at how artists and climate activists are expressing themselves through
the use of arts and other visual expressions. The idea is that the students are able to use these references in their own work and learn how art can be an important aspect in resistance and peaceful protests.

The students are to choose an area withing environmentalism that they are interested in and care about. They can choose whatever technique they like but are encouraged to be able to explain the visual devices they use to get their point across.

The students are presented with different examples of how art is used to make a political statement.

3. Assessment:
☒ Yes
☐ No

The project is assessment-wise a continuation of the project “A meeting place in the school yard” and is what is described as “period 2” in the assessment rubric below. This is an interactive, dynamic rubric, that is being filled in throughout the school year. This way the student can easily track their progress in the subject.
