"We connect children to the environment using art

& exhibit their work in our World Gallery to highlight what we all stand to lose."

“Let's invest in our children's futures by connecting them positively and personally to the environment, tribal culture and climate change. They will then have personal reasons to take positive personal action. If every child treads as gently as they can on our planet, and teaches their parents, then we will all have a brighter future.”

Resources

Video / Blogs / Art

Download our extensive lesson plans and teacher notes for each chapter of Last Chance to Paint from tes.com for FREE! Show your class our daily chapter video and read the blog to give a sense of adventure, even when we are not live on location.

Interact

During live expeditions we answer your questions in our daily blog and video via satellite and afterwards we will email your class the answers to make it interactive and real for them. So even when we are not actually live on location we can make it 'live' for your class.

World Gallery

Be inspired by the art of John Dyer and exhibit your children's art alongside the artist's on our World Gallery. Your children's art will bear witness to what we all stand to lose.

 

Every child (t&c apply) can have their work exhibited.

'TRAVEL'

Children and Schools are invited to ‘travel’ with the Eden Project’s artist in residence, John Dyer and musician Martha-Lilly Dyer. We are exploring endangered plants, peoples, places and animals using visual art and music to connect children to these subjects in memorable ways so they become aware of what we stand to lose.

QUESTION

Using the internet and satellite links your children can ask questions before, during and after the expeditions.

CREATE

Art is a universal language that can connect people and creates a reflective space for questioning and learning. We want children to not only ‘travel’ with us but to create their own piece of art inspired by our journeys to be exhibited in the WorldGallery.online alongside John Dyer’s art and art created by indigenous children from around the world.

“Inspirational, I have never had a class so inspired to create art and to do something to help to protect the environment.”
