Maryland has 436 documented species, according to the Audubon Society. We will be focusing on one species per week. Here is the lineup: Pileated Woodpecker, Baltimore Oriole (shown is art by Audubon, from Pinterest), Solitary Sandpiper, Loon, Carolina Wren, and Gray Catbird. Students will choose at least one to create a piece with watercolor pencils. We will focus on the anatomy and colors of the bird itself, working from photos, up close and personal, and enlarging to 11” x 14” size, without drawing backgrounds.
