In summer 2012, Caldera adopted a new way of linking art and the environment in our Youth Program, something we call The Geography of We. This multilayered, interdisciplinary project deepens learning and offers variety over the seven-year period that Caldera works with youth in middle and high school.
Each year, The Geography of We is focused on one of seven environmental themes. With the support of our mentors, teaching artists, program partners, and volunteers, youth journey through many art forms to create the layers of artwork that culminate in our Geography of We end-of-year Student Showcases, webpages, and The Geography of We workbooks.
We’re proud to announce the latest installment, our Year 2 (July 2014 through June 2015): WILDLIFE–The Geography of We: Humans, Wildlife, and the Habitats We Share workbook. We encourage you to print a copy and work through the activities with your family and friends!
