Earth Art and Vivaldi's Four Seasons
After viewing the work of artist Andy Goldsworthy (e.g. Passages, Time and/or in the award-winning DVD Rivers and Tides), students explore the elements of visual art by creating Earth Art, using found natural objects, during at least two of the four seasons. Throughout the process, the works and the commentaries of the student artists are recorded with still and video photography. Using I-movie, a DVD is created, combining the Earth Art images with the corresponding seasonal music of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The viewing of the DVD inspires student reflection and further exploration of the unique qualities of each season as captured by both the visual and musical artist.
