We love fall!

This month I will be teaching an Andy Goldsworthy lesson for Arts Around at Tyler and Aaron’s school.  Each month I visit the Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades.  I present an artist and then have the kids do their own project inspired by the artist that we learned about.  Since Andy Goldsworthy works almost exclusively with natural, site-specific objects, the boys and I gave it a try in our own front yard, making our own natural sculptures from leaves, twigs and flowers.  Here’s a video of what we did. (I dedicate the video to my mom because Jackson and Aiden have not stopped singing “Zippity-do-dah” since my mom and dad were here to watch the boys for the week we were in the Bahamas!)

  6. I love the song and so do the boys! The artwork is fantastic. Good job mommy and boys!

  7. Jackson worked very hard on his – he and Aiden were out there the longest, I think they would have kept working on theirs if I hadn’t told them it was time to go inside!
