Grade 8 Art students are combining their love of art, their passion for environmentalism, and their desire to spread art education throughout Vietnam. Lead by their teacher, Rebecca Jardin, these students have created landscape paintings through a combination of digital and paint mediums. From these landscapes, they further transformed them into digital posters focused on environmental issues.
Taking the learning one step further, the students have partnered with Orphan Impact, an organization that assists Vietnamese children in orphanages to have access to STEAM education. SSIS students are creating art tutorials as well as raising funds for art supplies in order to provide art education with a digital component for children in the Orphan Impact programs.
