McGuffey Students will be using their skills to draw, paint and cartoon midwestern and endangered species of birds. The students will also learn more about the lives of John James Audubon, Roger Tory Peterson and, still living artist, David Sibley.
The Project coincides with Audubon Miami Valley’s Art Contest for K–12 area students. In February several examples of our students’ work will be chosen for the contest and exhibited in the atrium at Alumni Hall, Miami University, Oxford campus on Saturday, March 3, 2012 and 12–4:00 pm.
All students will have a chance to choose what kind of birds they want to draw; select a media and catagory; and learn how to prepare a artwork for exhibit. We will have our own exhibit in the art room beginning next week until February 15.
