Art In the Garden

On a warm day in the garden the students learned about creating art with items found, while gaining ownership over their garden.

They were inspired by the Garden Educator explaining the art of Andy Goldsworthy.

As students were collecting items for their projects, questions came up around picking flowers and fruit.

The Garden Educator explained that if there are 10 or more of the specific flower, they could pick a few flowers.

They also learned to wait to pick the passion fruit until it is ripe.

Students identified plants in the garden…lavender, rosemary, succulents, lamb’s ear and more.

Then we had an art walk and students had the opportunity to explain their project, while other students listened and could make comments at the end.

Great day in the garden!
