Students participating in the Art and Nature workshop at LCS have been enjoying studying their beautiful surroundings through the eyes of an artist. We started the workshop with a watercolor study of the gorgeous fall leaves, where students created several resists using crayon and watercolor to create colorful leaves.
We have just started studying the work of Andy Goldsworthy, the environmental artist. He is famous for creating art out of natural materials, including some very inspirational stone work. After looking at some of his work and talking about cairns, students went to the river bank to create their own cairns. Students worked in groups of two and three to form their creations.
