Thoughtful

Career of the Month

Wildlife Biologist

"A wildlife biologist is a scientist who studies wildlife habits and environments. Those with a focus on insects may study how global warming affects the insect population, or how a rise in one species can cause the decline of another. Biologists create research studies, observe animals, gather data and advocate for wildlife."

Artist of the Month

Piet Mondrian

"Piet Mondrian is a Dutch artist best known for his abstract paintings. Art that is abstract does not show things that are recognizable such as people, objects or landscapes. Instead artists use colors, shapes and textures to achieve their effect


As well as abstract art Mondrian was also passionate about dancing! Apparently he didn't like slow traditional dances like waltzes or tango, but enjoyed high energy, fast dancing styles! He even called one of his abstract paintings Broadway Boogie Woogie after a popular dance of the time.


When Mondrian made his paintings, he would always mix his own colors, never using the paint directly out of a tube. He often used primary colors – red yellow and blue – as in this painting."
