How does art shape our perception of place? Inspired by both the Land Art movement and the sculptures installed in Gairloch Gardens, students will experiment with found materials to build ephemeral sculptures outdoors that create shifts in our perspective of the landscape. Students will then head back to the classroom to hand-build clay maquettes for outdoor sculptures of their own design. Once dry, sculptures can be taken back to school and painted.
