Art and Environment
In Your Classroom
A multimedia presentation introduces artists who make sculpture in nature, using the materials at hand—trees, rocks, water--in the sites they choose for their work. Students then collaborate on a project that transforms their classroom into a site for sculpture, and the found objects and discarded papers within it into sculptural materials. Using a variety of paper making methods and tools, they will construct a three-dimensional tapestry from these recycled materials.
At Lynden: Sculptures in the Environment
How do sculptures interact with their environment? On the mini-tour, students examine sculptures in their sites, and consider the relationship between three-dimensional works and the (changing) natural and man-made features that surround them. In the studio, they use the natural materials collected on their walk to make ephemeral sculptures to place in a yard or on a windowsill.
