Abstract

In this age, in which a direct relationship between human being and nature have gradually being cut, plastic arts and its education are required in all areas. In this study, environmental art practices which draw attention to the harmony of nature and human being are analyzed, these practices were those of the university students from different fields-excluding the art department. Practices started with the workshops, plastic elements and traditional materials were adumbrated and practiced. Studies conducted with 35 students within 14 weeks of elective plastic arts course and 3 hours per week. Environmental art practices made in nature were photographed and saved with natural materials. After they have acquired the basic knowledge, the students are observed to be able to reveal artistic works which can reach an aesthetic integrity and can be consistent with the goals of environmental art.
