African Animals at Large
Lamanna, Stacy H.
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v107 n4 p26-27 Dec 2007
Africa is so rich with ancient cultures, crafts, and traditions; a source of artists' inspirations and their works of art. A vast array of Africa's tribes and regions produce their own art specific to each tribe's culture. Masks and sculptures are two of the most common types of art produced. In addition to Africa's art, the terrain is home to some of the most unique animals found in the world. From the luscious patterns of the zebra to the ferocious ways of the lion, these exotic creatures are often a fascinating topic to middle school students. In this article, the author shares her idea of displaying student artwork as trophies and bringing awareness to Africa's endangered animals by mounting animal heads in a traditional taxidermy style.
