By focusing on specific environments students will develop in their aesthetic and conceptual responses, their understanding of place and the qualities of natural materials.

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.
This course is open to Lifelong Learning students as well as students from the School of Art.
