Art 7: Goldsworthy

Art 7 started learning about Andy Goldsworthy and watching Rivers and Tides (a complete version is available on YouTube). The 7th grade class will be embarking on a weeklong adventure in the Canadian wilderness next week. Our art projects this semester are based on ideas of Nature, Science, Loss, and Change. They just finished making a piece for International Dot Day inspired by nature (Nature Dots). Next we will study the influence behind Goldsworthy’s work, loss. Students will explore their own loss. We will study mandalas and Buddhist culture and finally we will make our own nature mandalas to honor someone or something that we have lost.

“We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves”
