Students studied the pioneering environmental artists, with emphasis on Andy Goldsworthy. The culmination of this unit was in groups of 2 or 3, students created their very own land-based art pieces, that could be ephemeral in nature. They used natural elements, and a natural outdoor setting in which to create their works. On September 30th each group presented their SSS's in a class-critique setting. They were encouraged to show their piece through photos, video, or stop-motion/time lapse. A few groups chose to physically take the entire class to their piece.
