RIMOSA and Nature

Art, Science, and Nature combine to create exciting hands on learning and creative sculpture!

This past month, RIMOSA competed a series of nature inspired sculpture at the Burnside Park and Hamilton Elementary School.  Families visiting the Tuesday farmer’s Market at Burnside explored sound through the creation wind chimes and drums.  The wind chimes and drums were made out of a variety of man-made and natural found objects from marsh reeds, shells, sticks,  silverware, and plastic caps.

Students in grades 3-5 at Hamilton Elementary explored the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy http://www.goldsworthy.cc.gla.ac.uk/ and created their own site specific artwork on school grounds.   Students and teachers enjoyed creating artwork in different ways and getting out to enjoy New England’s wonderful Autumn experiences.

“I’ve had parents tell me that this program got their children to go outside more!” – A comment from 4th grade teacher the week after our most recent “Nature Inspired Art” program.

RIMOSA encourages you to explore the world around you with your families and see what kinds of creations and discoveries you can make!
