While art for art’s sake is absolutely wonderful, what’s even better is conservation art, or art classes aimed at teaching children about wildlife conservation.
Diana Littlejohns does just that; she teaches children how to draw wildlife animals while sharing messages about the importance of conservation. While learning to draw elephants, children can become aware that elephants are now an endangered species, and what we can do to protect them.
Ms. Littlejohns is based in London but also offers classes online, and has continued to work with the Zambezi Elephant Welfare and Conservation Trust to spread awareness about protecting these beautiful majestic creatures. She’s quite an inspiration!
