Students Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy

Students Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy from Gabriela Elizalde on Vimeo.

Naturalist Intelligence designates the human ability to discriminate among living things (plants and animals) as well as sensitivity to other features of the natural world (cloud patterns, rock configurations). 

In this lesson I wanted to provide an opportunity for students to become  more aware of our natural surroundings and what we can experience by being fully present in a particular moment.  
This quality of attention may be what is at the heart of the "flow" experience. 

Suggested reading- FLOW- The Psychology of Optimal Experience by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (pronounced me-high chick-sent-me-high) 


  1. another great lesson

  2. who would of thought that you could use rocks, sticks,and pine needles to be creative. I guess using your imagination could has no limitations.
    coming from someone who never felt creative. Thanks for the insight. Great job!
