Andy Goldsworthy

Right now Iris's class is studying Andy Goldsworthy. Really wish I could come and sit in on her class to learn about all of the different artists they study!

If you don't know about Andy Goldsworthy's worh (I didn't before Iris told me!) then check out this video.



The class was supposed to go to Lincoln Park today to do some of their own Goldsworthy-inspired work on the beach but sadly they had to postpone. I can hardly even believe THIS is the cool stuff my kid gets to do in school! Although Iris has some pretty strong anxiety about separating from me, she does really enjoy being at school. I can see why!

  1. I just read this blog post earlier today and didn't know anything about this artist. Then I was reading through some of the other blogs I read and found another post about him! It's interview with another artist whose art is inspired by an Any Goldsworthy piece he found in the desert. I thought you and Iris would like to check it out!
