Andy Goldsworthy Inspiration
Our School has a very special week each year called Festival of Gifts. During this week there is a day dedicated to 'Go-off' in which the students explore various activities that match the theme for the week. This year we looked at how we could become a green school.
Here you can see the inspiration to use natural materials in art work like that of Andy Goldsworthy.
We then brought 90 Yr 2 students self made enviro plates together to make a Mandala. The following are some of the wonderful creations that the students made from smearing Vaseline on a paper plate then arranging the leaves and petals in a radiating pattern.
