Artist and member of the chART collective Jaymie Johnson came to Ms. Porter’s art class and did a presentation on her artwork that explores the connection between art, ecology, and community.  Johnson then led a workshop on seed-paper making, and the students experimented with various approaches to adding colour with food colouring and using stencils for creating the different shapes of pollinator species and pollinator friendly plants for their school’s art installation.

This project was made possible by a Richmond Community Foundation Impact Grant. Thanks to their support, the Richmond Art Gallery was able to partner with 3 schools, 6 artists, and 4 teachers to develop a year-long project that reached hundreds of local students and their families. Thank you!
