Landworks, Walk and Make with Jan Yates

Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre 139 Water Street, ST. Andrews

In this workshop, our goal is to understand nature by directly participating in nature as intimately as we can. This is an opportunity to engage with the natural world by walking and making art within it. In response to St Andrews and The Bay of Fundy’s diverse natural environment, we will ‘walk and make’ daily at various locations. Jan will guide you in making ephemeral land art utilizing materials from each site’s immediate surroundings such as sand, driftwood, litter, seaweed, stones and foliage. We’ll also review the evolution of land art, from plein air painting (Claude Monet) to contemporary environmental art (Andy Goldsworthy, Richard Long) as well as ‘walking’ art (Hamish Fulton). Those who would like to draw or paint ‘en plein air’ as well as photographers will also benefit from this workshop. ‘Works in progress’ as well as finished landworks will be documented via video. No experience necessary!
