Experiences in abstract painting made in the lesson "Goldsworthy: land art I".

In the first part of our Andy Goldsworthy series we presented various environmental works of art made by children. By using the picture and word association cards, the pupils developed ideas, which were then created out of doors. Photographs were then taken of the creations, which were used later to paint from. In this way "live takes" were made of a transitory work of art. In environmental art natural works of art are created which are stationery and exposed to the elements. Working in and with nature is the crucial idea. The pupils were so engaged with the individual work steps as described above that they wanted to experiment further. Firstly they developed ideas for new themes. Soon it was apparent that the whole process would start from the beginning. At the finish it was clear that the pupils wanted to follow on from their original themes and develop the contents of their paintings.

Firstly the original paintings were viewed. The children discovered that the contents of the pictures decreased with the painting process. With their new task they wanted to go one step further and confine their motif the absolute minimum. The central point was a selection geometric figures. By very easy means the pictures were abstracted. At the finish the children had not only their environmental pictures but also a whole sequence of paintings ranging from the original motif to an abstract paintings. At this point we would like to present the results of the pupils' efforts.
