HI Patty!
I have run an after school program with two colleagues for 6 years on the
lesson with Goldsworthy. It is wonderful- we've had their work in the
columbus museum of art for the last two years, spoken at about 5 or 6
conferences and published a small book at Kinko's showing their work for the
past 5 years. If you have any questions, let me know. I collaborate with two
science/LA teachers to do this and it's great! Our fall session is this
coming week, as a matter of fact. We're talking about taking it to hocking
hills this year and we're building a website soon......

I am doing this right now with my advanced sculpture class. We have a
wetlands and large wooded area right behind our building- which is great.
The students are really enjoying it. They are either working alone or with 1
partner to create a sculpture of all natural materials( rocks, sticks,
leaves). I am following this up with a lesson on photography- as they will
photograph their piece and then display the photographs. Is the film "Rivers
and Tides" on video? Where did you see it?

Has anyone brought the techniques and philosophy of Andy Goldsworthy into
the classroom? (Or taken the kids outside :-) ) I just saw his film
"Rivers and Tides" and it was absolutely am! azing.

I too am reviewing our art budget and this made me think of his way - using
found items in nature....and returning them to nature.
