WHITINGHAM - Twin Valley Middle High School art department and the winter survival program will be hosting the annual artist-in-residence program with acclaimed primitive artist Nick Neddo on Monday, February 12.

Neddo is the author of “The Organic Artist, Make Your Own Paint, Paper, Pigments and More from Nature.” He is an exhibiting artist who teaches wilderness survival, tracking, drawing, and nature awareness. Winter survival is a place-based outdoor program in Twin Valley Middle High School’s winter wellness initiative intended to center diverse programming around enjoying the great outdoors and building community.

Winter survival is in its third year, bringing unique outdoor experiences to students in grades six through 12 and teaches “Leave No Trace” practices of the national and state parks, shelter building, primitive fire-making, cooking, and herbal salve-making.
