        Art and Transformation | Waste Land | Lesson 1

        In this lesson, students will develop a working definition for the term "art" and discuss how objects, sounds, movements, and ideas are transformed into works of art. They will consider the impact of the Pictures of Garbage project on the lives of the women from the Jardim Gramacho landfill and the benefits and consequences of implementing art intervention projects. Finally, they will discuss how art projects can be used to effectively address social justice issues and develop their own art-based campaign to raise awareness about or improve an issue in their school or community.
