More sculpture

This is my first Nature Sculpture Class.  We used rocks and water.  We also used leaves and a tree stump.  It was a group project.  The class is based on Andy Goldworthy's work.  He is an artist that makes things in nature.  He makes sculpture.  He is very persistent.  He uses what he finds outside to make the sculptures and uses only his hands.  Making art like this is much harder than it looks.  You have to take into account the weather and  the objects you will have to use.  Don't get mad if it falls down before someone can see it.  Experiment to find out what you can do to make it last a day or two or plan on bringing a camera.  Some of the sculptures only last a few minutes (like the leaves in the water).
