Art across all subjects
Our art classes take every opportunity to dovetail in with lessons taught in other subjects. One fertile cross-over is between art and writing, reading and comprehension.
For example, 5th class K is reading "Modoc" by Ralph Helfer - who as well as being an author is a Hollywood animal trainer - and the book is about an elephant's adventure through deserts, jungles, circuses and the high seas, and all the people she meets along the way.
All of which provides plenty of inspiration for drawing elephants!
