This workshop investigates the new installation of Audubon’s The Birds of America and the Museum Park as sources for exploring the relationship between art and environment. Learn about Audubon from Joseph Covington, former director of education and Museum Park curator at the NCMA, and make “birdfolios” with art educator Charlene Bowling. Open to educators from all grade levels and subject areas. .5 CEU will be available based on prior approval of your local school system.
