ACT-BELong-Commit SWAN ENVIRONMENTAL ART PROJECT 2017

Mundaring Arts Centre is delighted to announce the SWAN ENVIRONMENTAL ART PROJECT will be held for the first time in 2017. This project provides an opportunity for primary school children in the City of Swan to engage with local and global environmental issues and promote a positive message about the importance of nurturing and protecting the earth.

 

THEME FOR 2017: LEAF LITTER - Hidden Habitats at Our Feet

Who is hiding in the leaves? Students investigate life in the leaf litter to understand food webs and the importance of the small creatures and organisms in ecosystems. The students’ artwork is a creative, imaginative response to their research.

To take part in this project students:

  • Research the 2017 topic, LEAF LITTER – HIDDEN HABITATS AT OUR FEET
  • Create an artwork / design on A4 paper based on their research
  • Submit their A4 banner design to the Mundaring Arts Centre by Friday 8 September to be exhibited at Midland Junction Arts Centre from Saturday 30 September to Sunday 29 October

Sixteen prizes to the value of $80 will be awarded to eight winners in the lower primary & eight winners in the upper primary category. Schools receive $70 per winning banner design. Highly Commended book prizes are also awarded to students for exceptional entries.

The winning designs will be reproduced as banners and displayed publicly for one year throughout the City of Swan. All participants, their teachers, friends and families are invited to attend the exhibition opening on Saturday 30 September at 2pm at Midland Junction Arts Centre.
