The Winship Middle School salamander print show will open at the Morris Graves Museum of Art Youth Gallery on Saturday, December 5, 2015 at 6pm. This exhibit will feature the artwork that students created after studying salamanders in the nearby forest. The students in Ms. Ford's science classes worked with both a Bureau of Land Management scientist and an artist during this extensive NCAIP project. Below is a word cloud of student reflection on this work. Mouse over the art to see what they said.
NCAIP in collaboration with the Bureau of Land Management have teamed up to get Winship Middle School students into a local forest to study printmaking, salamanders, habitat and invasive species.
A Winship student places salamander board in the forest as BLM scientist looks on.
An Ensatina eschscholtzii salamander is found and will be weighed and measured.
Initial data show a correlation between location and number/ type of salamanders found.
