Eruptions

Digital Education Program for Eruptions Exhibition

Gallery 1C03 is pleased to launch a digital education program for our recent exhibition, Eruptions, which featured new ceramic installations by Winnipeg artist Grace Nickel. Nickel collects, studies, transforms and memorializes felled trees and forest fragments in porcelain. She references the life cycle of living organisms and considers how the micro struggle for survival reflects the macro crises in which we find ourselves today, with climate change and resulting environmental catastrophes in mind. Nickel’s work evokes messages of fragility and grief, but also hope and resilience.

Our education program connects teachers, mentors and students with nature and enables them to respond creatively to the need for climate justice. It is formatted in 4-5 sessions with each session about one hour in length, but it can be adapted to meet your needs. Ultimately, participants create individual clay beads that will be joined together to form a collective “lifeline” of resilience and hope for our future and the future of the planet.

This digital education package is appropriate and can be adapted for use by students in grades 4-12 and adult learners and is relevant to Social Studies, ELA and Art curricula.

It includes:

  • Lesson Plan
  • Slide show of artworks presented in the gallery with image descriptions
  • Links to supporting resources such as exhibition video tour and artist's talk
  • E-publication with exhibition essay
  • Art activity with instructions and examples
