Earth Art Unit 7th grade

We just finished a huge unit based on the earth art of Andy Goldsworthy. We started by watching his documentary, Rivers and Tides. Then, we tried making our own sculptures from natural materials. Students were eager to get their hands dirty and play in the sun and rain. Through the whole experience of successes and failures with the sculptures, students documented everything in their field notes books and with cameras and iPads/iphones. They then created websites and blogs where they could share their process photographs as well as the finished work. We used blogger, and to share with each other, collaborate and comment on each other's posts. Finally, the students wrote artist statements where they fully explained and explore their artistic processes through writing. Below are links of student websites. Enjoy!
