"A World Community of Old Trees"
An Ecology Art Project on the World Wide Web
for Artists Everywhere
and with a Special Section for Art Teachers and their Students in grades 7-12
If you want to join kids all over the world in finding the oldest,
largest, or most extraordinary trees in their neighborhoods,
Here's what you have to do:
*Open your eyes! Ask Questions! Get a Tree Guide! A really good one
is The 1996 National Register of Big Trees
*Locate the oldest, largest, or most noteworthy tree in your neighborhood
*Identify your tree with its common name and Latin one, too
*Measure your tree 54 inches from the ground
*Take a photo of it
*Write a paragraph or two describing your tree, any history you can find,
and how you feel standing next to it
*Be sure to tell us the exact location, measurement, and approximate age
*Make some art work about the tree, (a painting, drawing, print,etc.)
*Scan your art and photo and save them as gif files (not to exceed 50 K)
*Then, e-mail your tree art, your tree photo, and your tree text to me.
It's easy with "Eudora" or your favorite mail program
*Or, you can send them Snail Mail
*Remember to identify your art work with your name, title, medium,
size, and the name of your school
When I receive your files, I'll put them up in our Tree Gallery for
world to see!
*Send me e-mail! Ask me questions!
HAVE FUN! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR TREES!
