KIDS CLASSES


DIRECT ENCOUNTERS - LAND ART (Ages 9-12)

with Jan Yates, S.C.A.
Saturday, May 30, 2015 
From 1:30pm-4:30pm
1 Session
$25 Members/ $35 non-members


Our goal is to understand nature by directly participating in nature as intimately as we can. Working outdoors with whatever comes to hand -twigs, leaves, stones, litter, seeds and flowers, participants will create temporary works of art. We will look at the work of renowned environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy, who leaves the landscape he has worked with unharmed. In this way the work of art arises out of sensitivity towards habitat. 

Each participant will make their own piece of outdoor art although working collaboratively on the same construction is also an option. Your land art will be documented right after it is made, so bring your cameras! 
* Please dress for the weather as we’ll work outdoors, rain or shine
