What is earth art?...
Earth art is a form of art that shows the beauty of nature, art is everywhere and everything is art. This demonstrates the simplicity and beauty of the nature outside. We tend to forget of the earth made things and this art shows how amazing the earth truly is.
Artist can develop skills...
I gained skills in learning about art, I did not really care for nature until I found out you can make something pretty out of it. I gained knowledge in using what is available because at my house we have Pecan trees at my house and when it is Autumn the Pecans fall to the ground. This is one of the materials I used for my project. I figured out that I am talented in finding creative ways to make things new for example I used old leaves and crumpled them up and used this in my project.
Artist can engage and persist...
Some challenges I faced were when I wanted to find a good place to make my earth work I could not find anywhere my younger sisters would not touch, I ended up putting my art on our porch. Lighting was terrible! I couldn't find anywhere with good lighting because it was so dark outside because of the new schedule and because I stay after school. I learned that not everything is going to go as I want it because not everything is perfect.
Artist can explore...
I was not sure of what else to use in my project besides the Pecans because that's what I was thinking mostly about. I thought the crumpled up leaves would not look good but turns out they looked great. Some new material that I used was everything! I was not familiar with the earth art and so it was sort of a learning experience for me. I enjoyed going outside and letting my sisters help, its different because I am not a outdoors person.
