Hands-On Activity #2

Draw Where You Live

In our book, “How the Raven Stole the Sun”, there is an image of the house where the Chief and his daughter live. There is a totem pole out front and a mountain in the background. In this activity participants will be asked to make a drawing or painting of the place where they live. They will be asked to think about what details are most important to them as they decide what to include in their own artwork, and at the end of the project will get to keep their creation.
