Make land art outdoors

What is land art? Can anyone make their own land art? Why not try? It doesn’t have to be that hard. Here are some ideas and inspiration that you can try, at home or outdoors around Moderna Museet. Why not borrow a land art kit from the Museum, with materials and instructions that you can use to explore Skeppsholmen on your own.

You can draw a nice spiral with water. Try using your own movement and twirl around!

Here is a thick spiral on wood, or a thin spiral in the gravel. They were painted with different-sized watering cans.

Start with something you found, like a tuft of grass. Arrange nutshells and pebbles around it. Or, maybe you’ve found something else that’s exciting?

A watering can is useful. A plant or a tree might be growing where you chose to make your own land art.

If you draw a picture in the gravel and pour water on it, something exciting might happen!

You can make a circle around something, like a plant, with nice, white, marble rocks that stand out against the gravel.

Pour more water on it and see what happens. Curiosity is a good tool.
