This workshop connects to the Australian cross-curricular priority of Sustainability.
Artists use their work to shine light on issues of environmental justice, raise awareness to environmental issues, and to imagine more sustainable futures. Nadine brings science and art together to help you think of activities for your students and provides examples of successful projects she has worked on that you could translate for the classroom.
Nadine Schmoll is a Brisbane based artist and educator whose practice spans art and science to create wearable art, sculpture and installations. She creates collaborative and sustainable experiences that harness community engagement and participation such as workshops and residencies with school communities to explore plant, animal and human interactions. Manipulating waste materials such as single-use plastics encourages dialogue on our consumer choices and profiles waste as a valuable resource for creative re-use.
Nadine has worked with Reverse Garbage Queensland, Inner West Council Sydney, Ballarat Art Gallery, Brisbane City Council, Out of the Box Festival, Woodfordia and Moreton Bay Region Libraries to deliver engaging arts learn experiences. Previous collaborators include soil and water scientists at the Ecosciences Precinct, Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation (2018); artist residency with Inner West Council, Sydney (2017); and artist residency with Oakleigh State School. Nadine holds a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education (Visual Arts).
