Nature Sculpting

Nature SculptingUsing a variety of found materials, students plan and design a series of 3 dimensional sculptures. Students learn how to use nature’s colours, textures and patterns to create an artistic piece that depicts a set of feelings and impressions. Inspired by the work of Andy Goldsworthy, we capture these pictures digitally to be shared by classmates and parents.

Season Availability: Fall, Winter, Spring
