EARTH: The Art of Global Warning.

An exploration of climate change through the arts. With Roni Pavick and friends.

This workshop will focus on art as a way to engage people in environmental awareness. We will talk about the power of art to inspire action and then actively engage in the art making process. You need not worry about creating a "masterpiece" as the workshop's goal is simply to enjoy the art making process and raise our consciousness on environmental issues. Participants will be provided with a variety of art mediums, including recycled materials, with which they can explore and create. Each participant's art will be a personal response to climate change and the issues facing us today. Our hope is that through this workshop we can create art which inspires and motivates people to take environmental action.
