Art in Nature: Andy Goldsworthy

7th October 2021

Children in Year 4 have spent the last few weeks studying cave paintings in their Art lessons and how the stone age people used natural resources to express their creative skills.

Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy’s amazing works of Art. Year 4 have been on a quest not only to work with nature but in nature during their Art lesson. They have been busy rearranging nature's natural forms in such a way to enhance rather than detract from nature’s beauty.

Just like our ancestors in the Stone Age, Andy Goldsworthy’s work draws upon a minimalist aesthetic that comes from seeing beauty in the everyday: stones, twigs, leaves, snow, ice and any other natural materials are carefully and patiently arranged, making use of repeated motifs such as snaking lines, spirals, circles and holes.
