Ms. Taylor’s Art 3D 9-12 class did a design challenge in their sketchbooks to create a public monument to honour the work of bees and raise awareness about the crucial role they play in the environment and our food chain. In order to take the message further out into the school community, the class decided to create an art installation using seed-paper, and instead of cutting out shapes, used origami to create their bees. Each student created one bee for the installation, personalizing it with designs and patterns; the rest of the bees were distributed to the student population with instructions on how to plant them.
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!
