Members of the High School Environmental Club participated this fall in EcoBuzz, a conference sponsored by PEYA (Peel Environmental Youth Alliance), in Brampton. As part of this conference Sheel, Sid, and Veraj and Mr. Davidson partook in a workshop entitled Sketch, Paint, & Shoot hosted by Tutored by Nature Inc and Gary Mascola.
Tutored by Nature Inc designs and implements urban wilderness excursions that inspire young people to become interested in Eco-stewardship and Eco-aesthetics. Participants were invited to respond to the human and natural environment through watercolour painting, drawing, and photography. The artwork created by our group was selected for the first place prize.
Mr. Mascola came to Mentor College to present the group with their prizes at the weekly Environmental Club meeting. Congratulations go to Sheel, Sid, and Veraj for their creative combination of environmental activism and artistic endeavour.
