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.
