P1/2/3 Art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy

Our P1/2/3 class and their class teacher Miss Bell, recently took part in an active outdoor art lesson in the style of Andy Goldsworthy

Andy Goldsworthy is a British sculptor, photographer, and environmentalist who lives in Scotland. He produces sculpture and land art in natural and urban settings and it involves the use of natural and found objects. He creates both temporary and permanent sculptures which draw out the character of their environment.


The P1/2/3 pupils went on a treasure hunt around the school grounds and garden to find as many objects as they could. These included wood, leaves, twigs, stones, rope, branches etc along with the odd piece of material and litter that had blown in!


They created some art work in the school grounds and then went out to the local park and surrounding areas to create other pieces of art and sculpture. They then invited the pupils and staff from the P4/5/6/7 class to go out and search for and look at their work.


When everybody returned to school, the work was then left for the villagers of Innerwick to come across and admire!
