Event Overview: Through a shared reading of the text, Tanglewood students will explore and observe aspects of nature as described and depicted by the author and illustrator. In preparation for the VC students will be asked to observe and collect some natural and man-made specimens from the school grounds. They will work with an artist, Ken Tucker who will demonstrate a number of artistic techniques. The students will create their own works of art and share these with students from other schools at the conclusion of the VC.
