This Power-Point Presentation contains 82 slides picture-packed slides. The presentation will guide you and your students toward the creation of their very own environmental work of art while learning an appreciation for environmental artists and they amazing artwork they do. You’ll explore both environmental artwork as well as larger earthworks. Both are clearly defined and numerous examples and artists are explored including Mya Lin, Robert Smithson, Christo & Jeanne Claude, Andres Amador and more. Links to plenty of well-chosen videos are included which showcase the best of what these artists have created over the past half century. Thirty slides are dedicated to Andy Goldsworthy for an in depth look at his body of work. This section transitions into numerous examples of student works which were created after seeing this very presentation. The last few slides are for the teacher and include a day by day lesson plan, tips for best practices, and a long list of meaningful questions and prompts to use during your lecture. This is an all-inclusive unit that is loved by students of all ages. I trust you and your students will love this project as much as mine did.
