Outside art

We looked at a picture of Andy Goldsworthy's picture Hole in leaves sinking in the Usborne First book of art. This book is a great resource for me as a non-artist. 

The book suggested going on to make some outdoor art. Younger Daughter looked at the picture made with stones and shells in the book then went on to make her own art.
This was the sun-I'm afraid that a few days ago we chalked on the patio and so some of these have a numerical background!

Rainbow over land


Cloud with rain falling

In the meantime, Youngest Son was making his own outdoor art around his "well".

A happy and easy creative afternoon!

    1. We did have some wind and pieces started to fly!

  2. These are lovely! I especially like the cloud with the rain!

    1. Thank you. It was fascinating especially when she did her picture of William Tyndale at the stake. We had watched the recent programme but I hadn't realised how much she had taken in.

  3. Great nature art Sarah! We have done some of this but seeing your post just reminded me not to forget this cute little 'craft' to include in our nature studies.

  4. That is so much fun! They turned out lovely!!
