8th grade students created a painting with the subject "Nebraska Winter Birds". They had four to choose from; Dark-eyed Junco, Northern Cardinal, Red-bellied Woodpecker, and the Black-capped Chickadee. A wonderful website that shows the students the habitats and sounds of birds is What Bird. They started with a pencil drawing of the birds and parts of their habitat. They then made a watercolor wash for their background and used tempera paint to bring in the details of the subject.
