Nature Crafts for Kids: Focus on Andy Goldsworthy

Our art class today was inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. Andy Goldsworthy is an artist who uses natural materials such as leaves and stones to create site-specific sculptures that reflect a relationship between the materials and their surroundings.

It was such a pleasure to see our students working with nature.

Engineering and mathematics come into play as they consider balance, structure, and composition while combining materials in 3-D creations.
