As part of the Artists as Illustrators unit last term, the Grade 1s and 2s discovered the work of Maurice Sendak, with a particular focus on the illustrations in Where the wild things are. The students spent five weeks, sketching and constructing their puppets and the results were wonderful.
Over the past three weeks the Grade 1/2s have looked at Sendak’s book Where the wild things are and have been creating hand puppets inspired by the illustrations. We started out with some developmental sketches. Students then picked their favourite image and made that into their hand puppet. Here are a few snaps of their wonderful sketches – enjoy!
