Andy Goldsworthy!

The K, 2nd and 3rd grade classes learned about artist, Andy Goldsworthy over the past two weeks.  Andy Goldsworthy creates artwork with natural materials. As a class, we focused on creating lines, shapes patterns and other designs with natural materials. This past week we had a great time creating natural art installations in the rock garden at Coonley.  Enjoy our pictures!

  These Kindergarten students created shapes
Some students used natural elements to highlight or bring attention to parts of the rock garden that would normally go unnoticed.

 Students worked together to create larger pieces of art, such as this leaf line which was over 25 ft. long!

 Natural materials were used to show the students understanding of pattern.

 Some students made recognizable shapes, like this apple!

With each design, a great amount of creativity and fun was shared :)
