I worked on the Flier fish for the upcoming Fall Aquatic Art Camp
and created the snail as a gift for a friend. I've always enjoyed
working in this 'journal page' style and wanted to share this
during the youth camp.
|Perfect place to create - Medicine Park Aquarium & Natural Sciences Center.|
So we had a blast at the Aquatic Art Camp yesterday where young participants learned
how to 'field sketch' by studying their subjects (fish) and taking notes.
Just look at some of the charming artworks that resulted from their curiosity and play.
|Warm-up on bookmarks.|
|Sariah works on the details of her Butterfly Fish.|
|Whitley was brave to take on this subject. |
We saw two Eel demonstrations during the camp!
Whitley's extensive Field Notes include the
Eel's powerful 860 voltage electric shock fact.
|Lili learned about the scientific name of a species. |
She also learned about the uniqueness of her fish's nocturnal feeding habits.
