At LVA's CFAC program at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve, we have access to many specimens from which to draw. We recently finished up our first project of the semester: a Snowy Owl drawn on black Bristol board with white charcoal pencils. Snowy owls have been migrating farther south for the last few years and have been seen as far south as central Kentucky. This project challenged the students on proportions, composition,  and drawing accuracy. Planning ahead was vital as some areas needed to be left black. They learned a valuable lesson of allowing the toned paper to do some of the work for them and they also learned a lot about this majestic bird. Thanks to instructor Jean for another wonderful experience!
