Ecopedagogy Book

Making the case that ecopedagogy and eco-art can transform and enrich art education, Bertling introduces these two burgeoning movements and outlines how they can infuse K–12 art education. Seven innovative curricular strands are presented to help art teachers embrace natural cycles and processes, envision alternative states and ways of being, restore ecosystems, and empower communities. This accessible, full-color text is the first of its kind to provide practical guidance and concrete strategies for educators interested in enacting ecological art instruction.

Book Features:

  • A foundational resource for using art education to foster environmental health and ecological integrity.
  • Guidance for developing art curriculum to meet different ecopedagogical goals.
  • Color images of contemporary eco-artworks.
  • Curriculum framework tables and reflective questions.
  • A comprehensive glossary and list of contemporary eco-artists.
