Marine combat illustrator, photographer and local wildlife artist Bruce Speidel will share his skills/techniques for drawing and painting realistic artwork. He will also provide photography tips using reference subject images. This will take place in the MS art room for 7th grades students for one day each trimester. Ultimately students will be encouraged to work on art meant for competition such as the Wildlife Bird Stamp competition held each year or the SD Governor’s Student Art competition. Cost covers the artist’s fee while the SMS will cover supplies.
