Eco Art Explorations (1 day)

ages 8 to 12

A new class we are really excited for! Check out our inspiration board.

Creating temporary sculptural and pictorial images with found objects in nature across the beautiful University of Saskatchewan campus for students, faculty and staff to discover on Monday. We'll be interacting with our creations and documenting our efforts with photos and videos to share afterwards. If students have something to take pictures with (camera, tablet, smartphone) they are welcome to bring it though it's not required.

Students should bring their own water bottle, two snacks and lunch, and should wear weather/activity appropirate clothing. We will email parents by 8:30am if cancelled due to weather.
