As we continue our study of the art of the Himalayan Mountains, we traveled north to Nepal. 3rd grade artists viewed various photos of holy monkeys found at the holy temple. Pilgrims visit the temple and the monkeys scatter around the site. Students used construction paper to create their monkeys, glued them in various positions then used oil pastels to make the texture of hair.
During “free choice” time some students painted the mural to reflect that of the temple found in Nepal. The monkeys took 2-40 minute periods and the students really enjoyed creating such fun creatures.
