"Understanding Sustainable Material Pedagogy in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia"

For my thesis in Art Education, I am conducting a case study addressing my main question, “How are studio-based fine arts students learning about sustainable material practices?” A sub-question to this that is just emerging is, “Can professors spend more time on fewer projects and go deeper into sustainability?”.

Although it is not yet clear on how this research will manifest in its final iteration, I believe that, through my research, new possibilities will emerge for best practices and has the potential to create a new FFAR course on sustainability in Fine Arts.
