The Art of Nurturing Nature: Visual Art Submissions

The exhibition is taking place during BC Youth Week and during National Mental Health Week, so we have chosen “The ART of Nurturing Nature” as the topic for this year.

We encourage students to explore what Nurturing Nature means to them in their own lives and in their own language. Students will draw inspiration from whatever Nurturing Nature means to them, and perhaps even what it means for humans to Nurturing Nature. We believe the resulting exhibition will be a great success and create powerful conversations and thought-provoking art around the subject.

Use This Submission for Category 1: Visual Art/ Media
