Prior to our departure, the students had watched a video about Andy Goldsworthy, a world-renowned British artist who creates unique and temporary sculptures in a natural setting from natural items found on location. Our students were grouped into small groups of three or four and given the freedom to make a sculpture from what they could find on the beach or the park. Afterwards, we had a brief art show where they were able to admire the sculptures from others in the group.
We all ate lunch together and, once the post-lunch tag games got a bit crazy, we headed up to the park to play Capture the Flag and Camouflage. The glorious weather contributed a wonderful day of laughter, creativity, and fun. We hope that future guests to the park are able to enjoy our sculptures before nature takes them back again.
