We always have to laugh about monkey's; maybe because they look so much like us!
In this lesson we're going to draw monkey's and add some extra funny details. Look at monkey photographs first. What do they look like - lenth of arms and legs, size of the head, eyes, nose etc. CHildren draw a frame on their sheet about 2 cm from the sides. The instruction is: draw a hanging monkey with two or three funny details. Examples: an Ipod, clothes, or jewellery . Draw your monkey as big as possible, but stay within the frame. Next: draw a jungle background, with climbing plants, tree trunks, big leaves and exotic fruit. Vervolgens wordt een oerwoudachtige achtergrond getekend: slingerplanten, grote varens, takken, boomstammen, grote bladeren, vruchten. Some of those leaves or branches may stick out of the frame. Colour the drawing with natural colours. Make sure the complete sheet is coloured, there will be no more white! Cut out the drawing (watch for the outsticking details) and glue it on a green or yellow sheet.
