Rural and Remote Special: S2 – Eco-Art Adventures! (Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4)
Virtual Excursions Australia is supporting the NSW Department of Education’s Rural Access Gap by providing discounted live virtual events available via DART Learning.
Saving the planet can be fun by turning trash into treasure and creating exciting eco-artworks! Come join the Eco-Art movement in this live and interactive virtual workshop with The Bowerbird Herd.
Journey with us through the threatened mangrove ecosystem at Sydney Olympic Park, and be inspired by creative visual artist Nichola Bryan, as she transforms the collected trash into a beautiful piece of eco-art right in front of your eyes! Students will then begin creating their own sustainable artworks by upcycling materials collected at school and home. Objects will be manipulated and arranged to depict threatened and endangered species or landscapes.

Scissors for every student.
Craft glue that dries clear (gluing the artworks is optional).
Rigid cardboard pieces collected from boxes to act as canvases onto which animal templates can be glued. The rigid
