Working Big. A Teachers’ Guide to Environmental Sculpture

This exciting guide applies some of the ideas of artists and writers like Ant Farm, Otto Piene and Willoughby Sharp to large scale art projects that can be executed with children. A pull quote from the back cover…”Children who have the opportunity to work together with large-scale materials are more likely to have meaningful, in-depth experiences than those whose background has been restricted to participation in small-scale classroom activities….A school should recognize that (such projects are) not only a logical extension of the classroom curriculum but also a way that students can become involved with art forms that are relevant to the world they live in.”

Text: Lidstone John, Bunch Clarence. pp. 96; BW ills.; paperback. Publisher: van Nostrand Reinhold Company, New York, 1975.
