Editor’s Note: Teton Science Schools Field Education experiences cultivate the skills of young scientists, artists, and naturalists. This week on the TSS blog, we celebrate the creativity of our students in a series of five posts featuring student work in just as many media: writing, drawing, painting, weaving, and mixed media. We hope you enjoy this nature-inspired work. Check out the other posts in this series: WritingSpecies AccountsWeaving, and Drawing and Painting
Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy, a nature artist who draws ideas (and materials) for his artwork from the natural world, students at TSS create sculptures in a place-based creative design process.
Teton Science Schools empowers students to observe and connect to the natural world by integrating the creative processes of naturalists, artists, and scientists. This blog series has highlighted some of the work that students produce in the field, whether that’s at the base of the Tetons, in a snow-covered field, or at the Murie Museum. We are always amazed at the perspectives, creativity, and passion of these young minds.
