Land art in the beech forest – and on the beach

2021

During 2019 and 2020 I worked with Sorgenfriskolan in Malmö. The children and I went to the Torup beech forest and the Ribersborg beach in Malmö.

Inspired by fairy tales, oak trees, acorns, moss, lots and lots of sticks and twigs, creepy-crawlies, jellyfish, slugs, bugs and sand and seaweed, the young artists came up with some glorious creations, and told many a fine tale about them.

The days were spent moving and making. Eating snacks. Collecting sticks or dipping your feet in the water. And then making art, either alone or with some friends. I had a blast – and I think the young ‘uns did too.

Here are some images of the Land Art they made.
