This exhibition features work created by student's at Banff Elementary School during the Nature Explores Program and other works from participants of the Town of Banff’s Seven Days of Art program. The Nature Explorers Program supports classroom teachers with outdoor, experiential, place based, curriculum enhancing field trips for kindergarten to grade 6 once a month at the Banff Elementary School. This spring, the program combined with Visual Arts at The Banff Centre to introduce students to contemporary art practices, learning how to combine artistic process with social issues and personal experience to tell stories through artwork. This partnership aimed to provide students with experiential learning in both the sciences and arts while developing students’ sense of agency and discursive abilities about environmental issues and citizenship.
