Sandhill Crane Exhibit March 10, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — deeshack @ 5:41 pm

So what do you do with 18  homeschoolers? Well, we do lots of art projects..here is our latest. We are attempting to “copy” the “COWS” in Chicago and the “SWANS”  in Lakeland, Fl.

So because Wauchula in Indian means Sandhill Crane we decided to use a Sandhill Crane. What we would love to happen is for someone to make us about 10 – 15 of these in metal and then have local artists decorate them.

These Cranes are on poster board and the kids used different media to decorate them.  These students range from kindergarten to highschool Hope you enjoy looking at these.
