ART MAKING WITH THE LAND

Spring 2017

Project 2 – Found Nature Sculpture

 

Project Description

 

For this project you will begin by selecting a natural form as the basis for your project. Your form should be portable, such as a rock or a tree limb that you are easily able to bring into the classroom. You will then incorporate other objects and materials with your initial form to create a sculpture. Much of your task will involve looking closely at the natural world. You will be hunting down objects and materials you consider significant and then figuring out how to put them together in an interesting way.

  • Due to space constraints, you will also submit a photograph of your sculpture to me via email on the day of critique.
