The Natural World - using the environment to inform concepts and artwork.

Students explored a range of artists who incorporate elements from the landscape or integrate the landscape into their work. They created their own proposals and works of art that integrated both elements of the landscape as well as integrating the work of art itself into the landscape. The resulting works incorporated their personal themes and the environment in and around Sungai Slim, Malaysia. See the full assignment at

The portfolio of work and student comments can be viewed in the following voicethread file.
