SCHOOLARTSMAGAZINE.COM 19 Want to Start Your Own Art Garden? An outdoor garden can enrich an already vibrant curriculum. You can use an open space on your school's cam- pus or terracotta pots as space permits. When possible, use native perennials; they have adapted to local environmen- tal conditions, are easier to care for, use less water, and will last for years. A gar- den can also serve as a place for com- munity involvement. Parents, students, and faculty can all add to the space and watch their additions grow with each emerging season. However the space is created, make it a source of inspiration for you and your students.
