ART PIXEL PANELS: ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION AND ART IN TEACHER TRAINING

Adeilson Moizés de Oliveira, Ivã Vinagre de Lima, Norma Barbado

Resumo


Solid waste improperly disposed causes several environmental problems and affects public health. Especially plastic, produced on a large scale and incorrectly discarded, can negatively affect terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. In this sense, this study aimed to sensitize the academic community of the Federal Institute of Paraná Campus Umuarama in relation to the inadequate disposal of waste through the reuse of plastic lids in artistic productions, activities here called "art pixel panels". To this end, undergraduate students in Biological Sciences promoted awareness and collection of plastic caps in potential generators of this waste. At the institution, based on figures researched on the internet and others of their own creation, the panels were constituted with tying schemes for these covers. To carry out the tying, internal wiring extracted from network cables was used, which were already in disuse, in view of their resistance and convenience in handling. Thus, 20 panels were made using more than 30,000 plastic caps. The art pixel panels were displayed in the lobby causing the academic community to reflect on the generation and final destination of plastic, in addition to serving as a source of artistic inspiration. It is believed that, through environmental education and art, it is possible to promote the formation of more aware and responsible people regarding current environmental problems.
