Intro to Audubon

The Indianapolis Museum of Art will be accepting entries for their John James Audubon exhibit. “Audubon was a French-born American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter. He was notable for his extensive studies documenting all types of American birds (and other wildlife) and for his detailed illustrations that depicted them in their natural habitats”.

For this we will be discussing wildlife/natural environments, and exploring them as much as possible in order to gather ideas for our own entries for the IMA! Today, children from room 4 at the Gilliate building were introduced to Audubon and his ideas. They were then able to take this and use it to create initial-draft drawings using both their own ideas and Audubon’s influence.
