Wenatchee Valley College will once again offer a drawing and ornithology learning community this spring quarter.

The Art & Ornithology Learning Community combines Biology 217 Introduction to Ornithology and Art 110 Drawing I into a ten-credit class that integrates art and science. The class will be held Mondays and Wednesdays from 1-5 p.m., with some Saturday field trips included.

This field-oriented learning community will help students develop a deeper appreciation of the natural history in and around the Wenatchee Valley. Students will move between the lecture classroom, drawing studio, biology lab and field trips to prime bird-watching areas in the region. They will also keep field notebooks for observations about birds in the forms of writing, diagrams and drawings. No drawing experience is necessary.

Students must register for both ART 110 (Sec. LC, Item 0298) and BIOL 217 (Sec. LC, Item 0807). See course descriptions for prerequisites at wvc.edu/Courses.

The class is taught by WVC Art faculty member Scott Bailey and biology faculty member Dr. Dan Stephens.

Registration is currently open for new and returning students. Spring quarter classes start April 2.
