just started an exploration of Andrew Goldsworthy, an artist for our time...

Has anyone explored the works of Andrew Goldsworthy as part of class learning? We've been studying him, and tomorrow the kids are scouting the school grounds for "nature-scapes," project places. Students will build their own sculptures and watch them change with the passage of time. We'll be doing this three or four times this year, in all seasons. We're recording it all digitally, and making iMovies of the experiences. If you've done something like this with your students, or are interested, please reply. We could share our projects. I could use some tips, too: got ideas about how to go about things? (I'll try to keep them out of the poison ivy, beyond that, it's a pretty open project. We'll use our school nature area.)

By the way, the movie "Rivers and Tides" is exquisite.

This forum is running at Fireside as well.
