Brilliant Brains Bulletin - Seventh
Current Studies and Explorations
We are about to finish the tutorial course we have been studying through the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Be a Better Birder. We have been using note booking to document our curiosities, research findings, and any pertinent sketches.
In December, we will take an artistic journey within the Birds of America book by Audubon. We will dive into his bio & look at his birding skills, sketch journal techniques, & discover his life endeavors. Through that journey, we will discover his art techniques as used in his book of North American birds. Then using the medium of pastels, we will create our own bird masterpiece & draw inspiration from Audubon's pieces of art.
a message from Mrs. Redmon
I have loved receiving pictures of all of the outdoor birding expeditions. Please continue to email or share those photos with me throughout the year.
If you ever have any questions or thoughts, please always feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
