I recently bought a movie about the artwork of Andy Goldsworthy called "Rivers and Tides."
I watched it with my ten year old daughter, and halfway through it, she asked if she could carve a bar of soap, saying I had never let her before. I figured that was fine, so I got her a cookie sheet, her brother's Swiss Army Knife, and a bar of soap. I was working on paperwork I had brought home from work while watching the movie, so I didn't pay any attention until she said she was done and what did I think?
Tell me what YOU think (she titled them both and took her own photos of both designs):
"Nature Inside Us"
Here's what I think. My daughter has got some seriously amazing artistic talent. Her "Nature Inside Us" piece has been the centerpiece on my dining table for a couple weeks now, and my house smells deliciously of soap. I love it. This weekend I plan to watch the DVD again and maybe she and I will head out and design something in nature like he did. Sounds like great fun.
