3rd Grade- Andy Goldsworthy-esque Environmental Sculptures

After watching the documentary “Rivers and Tides” about Andy Goldsworthy, the third graders went outside and created their own Andy-inspired environmental sculptures.  The students first looked for multiples of different natural materials and then spent about 45 minutes creating their own sculpture.  The next week we all worked on a sculpture together.  The third graders saw how much could get done with a whole team working on something, and we discussed how artists often have other people working with them, and how sometimes the concept becomes the art and not the actual labor… big thoughts for little bodies!
