Air and Water: Floating Sculptures
Grade 2

At the Galleries

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Experience art in the great outdoors! This full-day workshop connects students to their natural surroundings through a guided exploration of Gairloch Gardens, its site-specific artworks and a hands-on art activity. Over the course of the day, students will use traditional, found and recycled art materials to create artworks they can take home with them. Programs may be adapted to integrate curriculum content from your current classroom studies on request.

Students will be introduced to the work of artists who harness the power of air and water in their artworks for inspiration, then create their own wind- and water-powered artworks—wind catchers, wind chimes and floating sculptures—and test them out in the gardens.
