BOCA RATON – Student artists from Hammock Pointe Elementary School studied the styles of renowned wildlife artist Guy Harvey to interpret one “Great Horned Owl,” and will have their work on display this month at Daggerwing Nature Center.
Hammock Pointe art teacher Sirce Kwai Giveon taught art techniques to teacher Erika Kreda’s second grade class so they could draw wildlife using Guy Harvey’s style. Their interpretations of Harvey’s “The Great Horned Owl” will be on display at the nature center throughout February.
While Harvey is renowned for his work featuring marine wildlife, “The Great Horned Owl” was selected for the project because it represents a species commonly found in South Florida and in the habitat around Daggerwing Nature Center.
The inspiration for the students’ work, “The Great Horned Owl,” will be at Daggerwing Nature Center on Saturday, Feb. 21, during a presentation from 11 a.m. to noon by Antonio Fins of the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.
Daggerwing Nature Center is operated by the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department and is located in the Burt Aaronson South County Regional Park, 11200 Park Access Road, Boca Raton. Daggerwing Nature Center’s exhibit hours are Wednesday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
