International Student Climate Art Project (ISCAP)

News from Carol Anderson, ISCAP Founder and Coordinator

August 1, 2016

Welcome to the third year of ISCAP! Welcome to returning participants, and

welcome to new participants. I’m so thrilled that we are continuing this project.

Let me update you on our progress so far.

In the first year, 2014-15, a total of 5 schools participated.

They represented 3 cities, 2 countries, and 2 continents. A great beginning!

By the end of the second year, 2015-16, a total of 14 schools participated,

representing 7 cities, 5 countries, and 4 continents. And we added our first poet.

The amazing participants are from:

Savannah, Georgia, Richmond Hill, Georgia, and Glasco, Kansas

La Carlota, Argentina, and Bel Ville, Argentina

La Serena, Chile, Pisek, Czech Republic, and Singapore

We’re growing! What does that mean?

1. More students, teachers, colleagues, and families are aware of climate change

and have a deeper appreciation of our precious planet.

2. Students have created art, learned about famous artists, and experimented

with various art media and styles.

3. Students have studied the science of climate change and have incorporated it

into wonderful works of art.

4. Students and teachers have had the opportunity to share their art and their

artist statements with a global audience on the ISCAP website.

5. Students have had opportunities to display their art in their schools, in

newspapers, on TV, and in exhibits.

What are our plans for our third year of ISCAP?

1. We will continue to invite teachers and students to participate. I hope that all the

former participants will join us again this year.

2. We are making the website easier to use and more attractive.

3. We will continue to use Google Drive as the method to transmit photos of

artworks and students, and artist statements. Instructions will be shared later.

4. The deadline for submitting photos of artwork, photos of students, and their

artist statements is November 15, 2016. Yes, earlier this year.

5. In Savannah, we plan to host our second ISCAP art exhibit at Oatland Island

Wildlife Center in January 2017. We will display the original works of local

students, and we will show the far-away students’ works on a big screen. I hope

other cities will also display their ISCAP art in a school or community event.

Who are the creative people searching for solutions?

 

They are people of all ages, countries, languages, races, religions, and politics. Young people are especially good at creating and inventing ways to show the problem. They have zest, passion, and openness to embrace new ideas.

What is climate art?

 

Climate art is any artistic expression of climate change.It might be a drawing, a collage, or a painting about sea-rise. It mightbe a musical composition about temperature fluctuations. It might be a poem about an endangered animal. It might be a 3-D model of climate data. It might be an individual project or a group project.

Why should we have a climate art project?

Graphs, charts, books, lectures all serve their purpose to spread information.
But art has the potential to change people, to convince people to act, to convince them that climate change is real, and to convince them that they can be part of the solution.

When did the project begin?

Planning began in September 2014. We began inviting schools in November 2014. In August 2015, we started a website with student climate artwork. In 2015-2016, more schools and locations have joined the project.

Who is participating?

 

Student artists in Georgia, Kansas, the Czech Republic, Argentina, Chile,

and Singapore! And maybe more!
