April 5 - May 31, 2010
Ages 6 - 10 yrs old Inspired by artist and environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy, this class will explore art by collaborating with nature. Using natural material and found objects, students will create temporary and permanent sculptures. Students will also have the opportunity to utilize the Children's Art Centre's courtyard to learn basic gardening techniques while demonstrating composition, color, shape, space, and texture. This class has been designed to enable students to be inspired by their natural surroundings and to help understand the relationship between nature and art.
