Program Description
Students will study endangered species as they engage in a unique photo transfer method that feels like magic! Each student will begin by selecting a photo of an endangered animal to transfer onto a small board. Students will prepare their boards, complete their image transfer, and then embellish the photo with paint and collage to showcase important facts about their animal. These finishing touches to their artwork will also incorporate students’ personal expression.
