One winner from each category was chosen by a panel of judges. Winners will receive a one-of-a-kind painting by one of the Zoo’s animals.
Virginia Chance School wins the Trashformation Art Contest
Parliament of Owls by Chance School
During a month-long study on owls, a Kindergarten-First grade classroom did a focused study on the features of owls. To extend and enhance on this focused lesson their art teacher, Laura Patterson invited the students to use found objects or junk art to generate models of the owls they are studying in class. This creation reflects our work to reduce and reuse while also supporting a student-led learning process.
