What inspired famous artists such as Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh?  Nature!  We will use our five senses to observe the natural world and be inspired to design our own abstract and realistic works.  From the land art of Robert Smithson and Andy Goldsworthy to the precise drawings of John James Audubon and the conceptual pieces of Agnes Denes, students will gain an appreciation of environmental artists as they create landscapes, sculptures and more!
