Student Squirrel Art

There’s nothing as refreshing as nature and art, and the way the two combine in a young person’s imagination.

Check out a slideshow of gorgeous squirrels created by students of Greater Gatineau Elementary School (Gatineau, Quebec), to help beautify the virtual launch of When the Squirrels Stole my Sister.

Thanks kids! And a big thank-you to your teachers, too.

Mrs. Boersma’s Kindergarten class gave a new twist to the classic Thanksgiving Turkey tail by making a beautiful squirrel tail out of their handprints.

Mrs. Allen’s and Mrs. Weizel’s Kindergarten classes drew their squirrels using crayons and markers, respectively.

Mrs. Bush’s Grade 2 class took inspiration from That Artist Woman’s “Fall Trees” painting lesson (http://www.thatartistwoman.org/2010/0…) and Art Hub for Kids “How to Draw a Squirrel” lesson (https://youtu.be/_UDoNdtDArE) to make their mixed-media creations.

Take inspiration from these young artists and the wildlife around you to make your own beautiful works of art.
