Outdoor Art Club
Our first week of Outdoor Art was very creative!
First, we had a look at the work of Andy Goldsworthy, focussing on his work using leaves & ephemeral Art. Ephemeral Art is Art that lasts a very short time & is often made using natural materials. The work is then left outdoors where it returns to its natural environment.
We started by heading outdoors & collecting any natural materials we could find. Next we started laying the materials on our paper to create patterns & shapes. Some of us chose to make abstract pictures, just like Andy Goldsworthy & we also created actual pictures including landscapes, spiders, hedgehogs & butterflies.
When we were finished we took photographs of our work to share with you.....& then let it all blow away, back into the field where it came from!
