Young Artists Studio – Fairfield – Emphemeral Art Study at Devil’s Den

Last week, we had a Girl Scout meeting at The Young Artists Studio. One thing they were talking to the girls about was Andy Goldworthy and Ephemeral Art and how that inspired them in many ways in starting their business.

Well, that inspired us to try some ourselves. We went out to Devil’s Den and brought along our cameras/phones. Here are some of the shots we took of the project. We found an old saw mill by a pond.

Initial phase, silvery bark.

ChowderGirl added some leaves.

The moss was a brilliant addition - and required so many trips up and down the waterfall.

Finished work.

With editing/filtering.

Since we were on a kick with man made messes and natural elements, someone smooshed part of a Hostess orange cupcake onto a tree.

Don't worry, we removed it.

And finally, not our work, but a great example of humanity spitting in the face of nature. Right at the edge of 1756 acres of nature, a Capitol like glittery glimmery home.

Take THAT Nature Conservancy!
