Animals in Their Habitat
These colourful prints are truly fun to create and get us thinking about different ecosystems. Build paper collages of an animal in its habitat, learn basic printmaking or batik techniques, and create beautiful prints in bright colours of nature scenes. Artists Lynette Gillis, Charmaine Lurch and Judy Pisano.
Drawing insects? Hard, you say! You need a body in three parts: head, thorax and abdomen. Six legs. Two eyes. How does that mouth go again? Mandibles. Don’t forget the antennae! Then we cut, fold, bend, twist, stretch, push, pull and glue our drawings into a three-dimensional wonder ready to hop, scamper, leap or fly—one to take home and one for the classroom. How about a third for a show elsewhere in the school or in the community, just to show how much fun we have had. Drawings can be modeled after real insects living in Canada, Ontario, Toronto, wherever you like, or else, be totally imaginary. Artists Jane Gulland, Pria Muzumdar and Paul Walty. Available in French.

Artists Elizabeth Greisman, Jerri Johnson, Marsha Stonehouse and Allycia Uccello.
