Teaching environmental art

Has anyone had experience teaching continuing education classes in
environmental art? I would like to teach a class, as I am involved in this
type of art. I have collected slides and books on environmental artists, but
I am looking for what type of projects would motivate the general continuing
ed. Student/adult. (Someone, perhaps without previous art training.) Does
anyone have any ideas. One of the artists who inspired me was Andy
Goldsworthy and Lynne Hull. But I can remember when a professor suggested I
look at Andy Goldsworthy's art and I thought, "this is art?" Now I am
convinced and would like to share this art form that looks at our different
concerns and issues in society and get others involved. Any and all
suggestions are welcome!!! Thanks. A little about myself for background: I
have two classes to go to obtain my BFA in Fine Art, with a minor in
Philosophy. I previously had a Commercial Art degree. I'm an artist at
heart--concerned with our environment. I live in Nebraska where this type of
art is almost unheard of. Thanks Again! Sharon Steere
