Andy Goldsworthy

We were inspired by this post, on the Kidmade website, to explore the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy. We carefully studied the book, A Collaboration With Nature and also got a lot of ideas from the resources listed below. After a few great shell collecting expeditions the girls were ready to create.

What amazed me about this experience was the intensity and focus the girls demonstrated while creating. They took their work seriously because they felt like they were doing the work of a true artist. They also now feel as if they know Andy Goldsworthy personally.

Please take a minute to see the complete gallery on Kidmade. The creations are truly extraordinary!

With over 10 years of EDU experience and a growing family, Mariah started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents and teachers. In 2010 Playful Learning received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal, and in August of 2011, Shambhala Publications released her first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder. Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.
