Students to welcome a visiting artist
Eighth-grade students from Our Lady of Lourdes School will welcome a visiting artist for four workshop sessions March 21, 23, 28 and 30. During these four sessions, local artist Janet Britt will work with the students to create wood sculptures. Each student will draw an endangered animal on a piece of wood, and Britt will cut the animals out of the wood and attach to a base. Students will paint the animals and also share, if time allows, research on the animal and why it is endangered. This workshop will combine art, science and environmental themes and is made possible by a grant from PNC/Fund for the Arts Teacher Arts Grant.
