Student paintings in response to Thomas D. Mangelsen: A Life in the Wild
This online exhibit features artwork made by students from our local schools. These students worked with Museum educators to explore our current wildlife photography exhibition, Thomas D. Mangelsen: A Life in the Wild. Participants learned about the elements of photography, and discussed Mangelsen’s ingredients for a perfect photograph – patience, light, and knowledge of animal behavior. Each student chose a photograph in the exhibit that was inspiring to them. They carefully studied and sketched the image, ultimately transforming it into an acrylic painting on canvas board.
