By Kaawaate East City P.S Art Teacher Jenny Pink’s Homeroom Class
The theme guiding our work is “DO BETTER”. Specific areas within the Erring at KG classroom are dedicated to designs by grade 7 & 8 Kaawaate students. Students are recognizing current global issues that matter to them and bring awareness through art, with the intention of visitors reflecting on how they can ‘DO BETTER’. Issues around school waste, plastic use and disposal in the ocean, devastation of ecosystems and finally the reconciliation that needs to happen to restore our relationship with Indigenous Peoples. The art installation of eyes, made of mixed materials, represents the personal reflection that needs to take place for us to DO BETTER now and in the future. DO BETTER: for our earth, our animals, our oceans, our forests and for our children.
