In the fall semester , Arts Education ( EVIS ) students experimented with curricular practices of perceiving and teaching that are sensitive to movement and change already underway . To address the university mission of learning about , and acknowledging the ways in which we are “ One with Mother Earth ” ( peyak aski kikawinaw ), students looked at the plants around them , some visiting the indigenous prairie flower garden at First Nations University of Canada ; others visiting the native flower garden at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum ; and some offering tobacco to the plants around Echo Lake as they sought to learn how to ask for teaching from a world in the midst of change . Above is a sampling of the artwork the students produced in response to their explorations .
