The workshop will start by providing a general picture of the different issues posed by extractivism on the region, supported by images, data and testimonies. Martín Crespi will tell us how he managed to reflect these problems on his visual, sculpting and conceptual works, all of them gathered in his book Naturaleza Humana.
After this contextualization, teachers will be encouraged to point at the problems their schools or community face. We will see how to summarize and conceptualize a problem to then come up with different ways to approach environmental topics with children through art.
We will share tools and techniques for storytelling, such as sculpting with recycled materials, the making of paper puppets and the Japanese technique kamishibai. Finally, we will present ideas to implement them creatively considering the different educational levels.
