Third and fourth grade students looked at the art of Andy Goldsworthy. He is an artist from the UK who makes his work using all natural materials. We watched portions of the beautiful film "Rivers and Tides," about Goldsworthy's work. Students were in awe of Andy Goldsworthy's work and his patience. They loved the opportunity to get outside and work with sticks and leaves and rocks. We talked about how this type of art made us aware and appreciative of the natural beauty of where we live.
