Students are encouraged to slow down and to look for the elements of design in nature, and they are reminded that nature has always acted as inspiration for art, design, and architecture. At the end of each workshop, there is a celebration with a slideshow of each students' 10 favourite images, and we give "extension activities" to teachers and students so that they can continue to learn.

Out on the Shelf
The Pride Committee is Out On The Shelf's largest committee and is responsible for organizing Guelph Pride Week every spring. This is a big job, and we have found that it runs best with two co-chairs rather than one. The Pride Committee takes a short break in June following our Pride Week, but otherwise runs year round with planning meetings, acquiring sponsorships, managing volunteers, and promoting in the community.  
At least one co-chair must sit on the Out On The Shelf board of directors. It is preferable that one co-chair manages bureaucratic details (like budget and policy implementation) while the other co-chair manages the human factors (like volunteer coordination and promotions within the community). Generally individuals fall into either of these categories based on pre-existing skill sets and interests. Sponsorship acquisition and planning the Pride Week events can be shared between the co-chairs, as well as committee volunteers.  
Please feel free to apply with a friend or colleague if you think you would work well as a team give these responsibilities, or apply independently if you think you'd like to take on the job on your own or would like for us to find you a co-chair.
