Notes From the Classroom: Paint Brushes and Blue Crabs
January 18, 2023
By Dr. Jennifer Wiggen, Senior Educator
This weekend our Environmental Content Creator, Morgan Hooks and I got to work withthe No Boundaries Art Residency and their youth program, DREAMS of Wilmington on a collaborative art piece of Blue crabs. We’ll get to keep one of these pieces and it will be displayed in Fleming Environmental Education Center at the Conservancy in the spring.
Before we started painting we got to meet visiting No Boundaries artists that were creating all types of art on the island and hear about what inspires them. It was a wonderful experience to work with these two organizations and be able to create art together and teach the students about terrapin excluder devices (TEDs) andour fall intern, Heather’s project.
You can view the art that was created by the No Boundaries Art Colony and DREAMS of Wilmington during their visits to Bald Head Island at the opening reception on Saturday, January 21st from 6-9PM at Wilma W. Daniels Gallery in Wilmington.
