Landscape in a Lacquer Box
Savage, Martha
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v109 n7 p29 Mar 2010
A symbolic dry landscape garden of Eastern origin holds a special fascination for the author's middle-school students, which is why the author chose to create a project exploring this view of nature. A dry landscape garden, or "karesansui," is an arrangement of rocks, worn by nature and surrounded by a "sea" of sand, raked into patterns representing rippling water. This article presents a lesson that allows students to create a dry landscape garden using rocks and raked sands in a box. (Contains 1 online resource.)
