Join us for the Climate Creative Exhibit Opening at the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington on November 30th.   We’ll gather from 2-4pm and 4-6pm in the Fletcher Room to celebrate the artists and their profound work.  Can’t join the Opening?  The Exhibit will be up for the entire month of November!

Climate Creative is a professional learning program of Shelburne Farms working in collaboration with educators and partners from UVM, TW Wood Gallery, BluSeed Studios, The Wild Center, and BCA.  Educators from a variety of disciplines joined together in a year-long program learning about climate change and how to integrate arts-based education; from the visual arts to the written word.  Climate change is something we all face and must address.  Educators are tasked with integrating climate education into their curriculum; but it can’t only be the science teachers’ job to teach about climate.   Come see student work from schools around the state and learn about what students are doing to communicate about the climate and climate change in their own communities.  Their teachers have participated in Shelburne Farms’ Climate Creative Professional Learning Program.

Students’ work from the following schools will be featured:

Integrated Arts Academy

UVM Colllege of Education

Camels Hump Middle School

Shelburne Community School

Waitsfield and Fayston Elementary Schools

Browns River Middle School

Main Street Middle School

Summit Street School

 

Thanks to the educators who inspired and contributed to the development of this new professional learning program!
