St. Michael’s Creates Eco-Friendly Sculpture Project

The Studio Art class at St. Michael's created a sculpture at Easton's Beach using natural materials.

Using the sand as their canvas, the Studio Art class at St. Michael’s Country Day School recently transformed the face of Easton’s Beach by creating an eco- friendly art installation.

After studying the work of Andy Goldsworthy and other environmental artists, the students completed sketches of their ideas and then brought them to life using only a few simple garden tools and natural materials they found on the beach.

The design was inspired by the school mascot, a hurricane. Teachers Leslie Keohane and Robert Kalaidjian oversaw the 43 students in grades five through eight who worked on the project.
