In the Classroom: The Animal Within

Substitute True Kelly spent the day with 60 10th-12th grade high school students discovering the animal within!  Students created allegorical self-portraits by combining the unique aspects of particular animals with their own human characteristics.  Within the study of animal features, True discussed the differences between celebrations and ceremonies in traditional and indigenous cultures.  Students were challenged to expand their own self-awareness; their drawings brought surprise, laughter, and joy into the experience.
