Land Art



What is Land Art?  What are Earth Works?  Listen to the videos above and prepare your own definition of Land Art.  We will be exploring the the lake shore and back roads around our school to examine a variety of materials and site locations that will contribute to your next art work.  

Consider the types of materials that you have to choose from.  How will your selection affect the environment?  Will the weather affect your work?  Will your artwork be situated in a location that will be viewed by many people?  Think of how photography will help you capture your process as well as the final piece.  

Your finished artwork will be shared on a global scale.  These images will be featured on our class blog as well as Northern Art Teacher (and potentially other sites as well).  

You will be asked to provide a written statement that explains your artwork:  
  1. What materials were used, and how easy/difficult they were to work with?
  2. Where the art work was made, and why that specific location was chosen?
  3. How does your art work complement the environment?  How has the environment been respected?
  4. What was your experience like?  What challenges did you face, and how did you overcome these difficulties?
