We began by viewing brief videos of Andy Goldsworthy on YouTube.
We discussed the repeating motifs in Mr. Goldsworthy’s work, including serpentine lines, spirals, and a circle with a hole in the center. We also looked at examples of stacked stone.
Students wend to the school garden and created temporary art works from materials found there.
I took the photos initially, then turned over the camera to some early finishers who shot the rest of the photos.
Most students chose to work in pairs or groups for this project. Several said it was their favorite art project EVER! A few watched the YouTube videos again at home.
Next time you have good weather, consider an Andy Goldsworthy project.
