Year 3 have taken advantage of the small spots of warmer weather to create art inspired by the famous natural artist, Andy Goldsworthy.

Beginning the term looking at how artists such as Cezanne and David Hockey create paintings of the landscape, they ended using the landscape around them to create their own abstract masterpieces.

The children considered the shapes and materials used by Gormley to create smaller pieces and then as a class they created a grand spiral design using sticks, rocks, leaves and flowers. It was an excellent, collaborative effort as the children had to think about where they would lie their collected materials between those placed by others and discussed moving and replacing items as more were gathered.

It is a very easy and fun way to create art and hopefully we could see more creation that have been made over the Easter break!
