TreeLine at The River School tells the story of an artist residency at the Ananda Marga River School in Maleny, Queensland, Australia.
Children from Years Seven at the school worked with artists Renata Buziak and Judy Barrass over several sessions learning the processes of cyanotype and developing artworks that expressed their feelings about environmental issues.
The project was part of TreeLine 2012 a biennial event that reinforces and celebrates the Sunshine Coast Council's Green Art strategy.
The author hopes this book will reinforce the learning process and inspire other schools, artists and teachers to use art as a medium for change.
Juanita is the avatar of Australian artist Judy Barrass. Juanita makes art in cyberspace in on-line virtual realities. She is interested in the intersection of the real and the virtual, how one can compliment and augment the other. As an artist she moves freely across the boundaries, creating works and tools that fit the purpose, and finding her audience in both realms.
