Art Activity: Mixed Media

The General Store is an initiative started by artists Nahanni and Ben Evely, in their hometown of Banff, Alberta on Treaty 7 Territory. The project seeks to put a critical lens on consumerism within outdoor recreation and tourism culture. Their objective is to create a positive impact on how people engage with tourism and outdoor recreation. The artists use mediums including but not limited to photography, collage, and sculpture. The General Store will be an exhibit replicating a gift shop.

Art Activity: Students will use a range of materials to create work that considers our impact on nature and the outdoors.
