Nature MOSAIC Art Challenge: DAY SIX!

Another glorious day of exploration! On my walk home today, I gathered the remaining leaves and seed shells I needed for my mosaic. I then began to piece together the composition of my mosaic, working on fitting together the shells…and then the leaves. After several attempts at fitting shells together, I decided to focus on the heart of my mosaic. My original inspiration for circular collections. Using one of the larger leaves I had collected, I began fitting my abnormal, hole-filled leaves into the holes around the outside of the larger leaf. The following composition then developed from those explorations:

Tomorrow is the final day of the challenge. That being said, I will attach all of the above pieces to my chosen canvas board and will add the remaining details to my composition!

I hope you all have enjoyed this challenge as much as I have!

‘Til tomorrow…happy explorations!

  1. Hey, thanks for the positive response!
    Your blog is wonderful. I’m glad there are educators like you out there who care about taking care of this planet I happen to find myself on. (I also really enjoy your nature videos)

    Have you ever heard of Andy Goldsworthy? If not you should check him out. Nearly every library has a copy of ‘Rivers and Tides’ and it’s lovely.

    • Thanks!

      Yes! Goldsworthy’s work is incredible! I actually blogged about him a few months ago, and also did an Goldsworthy-inspired environmental art lesson with a group of second graders (pictures are in a previous blog post). Great stuff–and the kids love working with the natural materials as much as I do!

      Cheers! I’m looking forward to reading more on your blog too! 🙂
