This video is promo for The Stream of Dreams Murals Society. From the Stream of Dreams website: “Stream of Dreams is a whole school eco-education program that educates communities about their local watershed, rivers and streams, encourages behavioral change to conserve and protect water, empowers youth to make a positive environmental impact, and creates a community art legacy by and for the whole community.”
Coverage of a school based art program run by the Burnaby Art Gallery. The program is designed to educate students about the intersecting histories of math and art and to introduce them to artists who used mathematics in their work. In this hands-on class, kids create works of art using pattern, tessellation and origami paper folding.
Photos were later used in various marketing materials for the program.
This video features the work of Vancouver based Elements Society and their project Destination Conservation, which brings together students, educators, and school custodians so they can develop practical plans to conserve energy and water and reduce waste at school.
Although the program is facilitated by adults over the course of the 3-year project, the emphasis is on students to develop their own initiatives, which in turn are directed at educating other students in how to make positive environmental change in their own unique school environment.
