Andy Goldsworthy Inspired

Once you’ve seen some of Andy Goldsworthy’s work, you want to try it. The whole school was divided into four teams. We headed upriver (bear reports downriver), hiking for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes of creating, we did an outdoor gallery walk.

  1. I love your Friday multiage outings. It looks like the students do, too!

  2. Hi Bonnie!
    Just found your blog, and looking at the Andy Goldsworthy art reminds me of great times at Sleeping Lady. I look forward to continued reading about your big adventure!
