‘We Love, We Laugh, We Learn’

We have been looking at tourist locations in Cambridge and this week we were looking at Kettles Yard and considering the question: "What is art?" We looked at the founders of Kettles Yard, Jim and Helen Ede, and how they displayed natural objects in their home (such as pebbles and feathers) alongside paintings and sculptures. This led us to considering the artworks of Andy Goldsworthy who uses found objects such as branches, leaves and stones to create circular installations outside in nature. We went onto the field to find our own art materials and were very happy with the results!
