Abstract: Mobilizing the power of arts in and through inquiries within the field of learning sciences can forge a new space for learning. Our paper highlights how arts-based methods inaugurate spaces for critical transdisciplinary understanding of soil with refugee children who participated in our multimodal land-based learning program. Refugee children’s artwork and dialogic interactions were examined in social and scientific contexts through the conceptual framework of arts integration and critical pedagogy to elucidate relationality through land-based learning experiences. Careful planning and composition of soil portraiture offered insight into soil as a living entity and medium which fostered co-creation and unearthing of sociopolitical awareness surrounding body consciousness and (de)colonial relations with the land.
