Animals/John Breen/kindergarten

Where would you usually go to see animals? Did you know that we can find beautiful animals at the MFA? Let's go on an animal journey to see how many we can find!

While "hunting for animals" discuss how animals inspired artists from all over the world. One can inquire,why the artists use these particular animals for their subjects,

what animals represent power,spirituality,and protection? Allow the students to engage in the various styles and creative mediums that were chosen. Above all, explore,

create new ideas and have them experiment with their newly found observation skills.
