Hammock Pointe Elementary School’s Art Club Display - December 2019
With Mrs. Giveon’s leadership, the Art Club at Hammock Pointe Elementary School is a special group of talented and self-motivated students selected for their excellence in behavior and high aptitude in learning. This team of young Naturalist Artists will participate in an upcoming naming and art contest for the new kingsnake at Daggerwing Nature Center. In preparation for this contest, the students began researching and learning about this native reptile’s habitat and natural history through videos, books, and the internet.
Their new understanding inspired the artwork for this display, which showcases, in pastel painting techniques, their interpretation of the Florida kingsnake’s habitat.
In May, the students will complete the contest with acrylic paintings of the kingsnake itself and essays suggesting the new name!
