AUDUBON - WITH 12 COLORED PLATES FROM ORIGINAL AUDUBON PRINTS
the bird logs for Nature walks...
Bird Log Kids: A Kid's Journal to Record Their Birding Experiences
and MaryAnn Kohl's project idea for Audubon (green Science main lesson books) in Discovering Great Artists: Hands-On Art for Children in the Styles of the Great Masters
But I'm still looking for more ideas to help us explore this great Artist. Today at Artsfest I came across a booth which inspired me. The art is called "Pyrography" which means wood burning. The artist, Rose M. Beitzell, had wonderful work, especially accessible because she has made a lot of her wood burning available as prints or made into notecards. I purchased 14 different bird notecards for us to study and I plan to have us compare her bird portraits with Audubon's. I also asked the artist herself, who was there at the booth, if she would be willing to visit our school and talk about her art style. I'm hoping we can make that happen!
