In search of ideas for art, Don and The Big A children visit a zoo. The children learn to choose animals that visually interest them. They study the animals’ special characteristics by imitating the different ways each animal moves and by sketching in their Idea Books.
The children learn about the many different ways in which artists get ideas for art through visits to the studios of sculptor David Gilhooly and painter Jacob Lawrence.
