Connecting Creativity and Conservation: An Overview of Eco-Art Education 
Wednesday, July 10, 2024 | 7–8pm ET
FREE for NAEA members; $49 for nonmembers

Empower your learners to become innovative stewards of our shared planet through art! Empty bottles, worn toys, and plastic shopping bags often end up as landfill overflow polluting the environment. Inspired by the works of art collectives like the Washed Ashore Project upcycling marine debris into impactful sculptures, this webinar explores the intersection of creativity and conservation through eco-art education for K-12 learners. Join us to discover practical approaches for building students’ artistic talents while cultivating their ecological awareness and developing their social consciousness toward environmental sustainability.
