MAY 14 - SEPT. 30
It isn’t just scientists who can help raise awareness about climate change - we need the power of art to reach hearts and minds! Are you a young artist who wants to make a difference but not sure how to start? In partnership with the Canadian Rockies Youth Network and with support from CPAWS, we are proud to launch the Rockies Repeat Youth Climate Challenge.
In this challenge, you will travel via Google Earth to some of our Rockies Repeat painting locations. Then, it is your turn to create. Use a medium of your choice (watercolour, ink, charcoal, etc.) to paint a threatened glacial landscape.
Winners will have a chance to have their work featured as part of the Rockies Repeat Initiative!
HOW IT WORKS
Step 1: Watch our teaser trailer to get a sense of what our project is about and feel the power of the landscape if you have never been there before.
Step 2: Use Google Street View to visit one of our Rockies Repeat painting sites in the Rocky Mountains.
Step 3: Use a medium of your choice to create your own interpretation of the landscape based on what you see and how it makes you feel.
Step 4: To be entered in the competition, share your completed work on Instagram by Sept. 30, 2021 at 11:59 p.m MT using the hashtag #rockiesrepeatyouth and tag @cpaws @RockiesRepeat @Canadian_Rockies_Youth_Network
