Friend of the show Gillian Judson was joined by artist Adelle Caunce for this lively discussion. Adelle's newest creation, the book Playing in the Muck and Other Art Activities, was designed to accompany Gillian's book, A Walking Curriculum. Here's a taste of what we covered in this Earthy Chat:  

*appreciating the underappreciated creatures (of the muck, soil, and ocean depths)

*experiencing nature through an artist's eyes

*re-assessing what we mean by "value"

*using imaginative and ecological pedagogies in multiple areas of education

*how we might consider curriculum and “curriculum-ing” as engaging in aesthetic experiences

*comparing "lovely" and "un-lovely" things to explore subjectivity and different perspectives

*Peacock Spiders, Goblin Sharks, and Anglerfishes


Dr. Gillian Judson is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University. She teaches in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction programs. Her scholarship looks at imagination’s role in leadership and learning (K–post-secondary).

Adelle Caunce is an artist now residing in Surrey, BC. She has lived and had her work in galleries and shows in San Francisco and Petaluma, California, and Dallas, Texas. People from all over the world have bought her pieces, but most of her time is now devoted to raising her kids. Every so often she gets to create something new, like this book, which is great fun!

Playing in the Muck and Other Art Activities: Imaginative Art Activities for the Walking Curriculum can be purchased now at Canada's Non-profit Outdoor Learning Store:
