Exploring Land Art
Week 1: We spent a little time looking at examples of Land Art, from such artists as Richard Long and Andy Goldsworthy. We talked about colour, pattern, shapes and symmetry. The rest of the session was spent letting the little artists explore the garden, collecting flower, leaves, grasses and any other natural objects they could find. I also gave them some objects from my hoarding(!) drawers, such as seashells, stones and pine cones. The children were given the choice to work by themselves or in pairs. They freely and playfully explored their finds, making patterns, playing with colour and textures and composing little artworks. They recorded their results with a digital camera.
