Aberystwyth University's School of Education & Lifelong Learning present Land Art, a course run over several months by artist and tutor Judy Macklin, including practical teaching, lectures and seminars.
Working at Poppit Sands and the surrounding area, you will create site specific artworks both individually and in groups.

This course will include lectures, seminars and you will be required to produce documentation as well as visual and oral presentations of your work.

By focusing on specific environments students will develop in their aesthetic and conceptual responses, their understanding of place and the qualities of natural materials. The module aims to develop awareness of the discipline within a range of contextual discourses: contemporary art since 1950; the wider historical perspective of artistic response to nature and landscape; recent political/social/scientific developments in understanding of the environment.
Topics will cover:- Defining Landscape: an introduction to landscape theory and debates; Art and the Environment- a survey of the rise of Land Art and current practice; American and British Practitioners from Smithson to Richard Long; Mapping the Landscape: debate and discussion focusing on experiencing, recording and documenting the landscape.
