For Educators 'Travel', Ask, Learn, Connect, Create, Exhibit, Care

Resources and Inspiration

We want you to get all of your children creating their best pieces of art ever which are inspired by our ‘Last Chance to Paint’ chapters. You might be able to join us ‘Live’ on one of these or use a previous chapter as inspiration for your children and class. Once their art has been completed please submit their art to the WorldGallery.online so we can showcase it to the world. We believe that the reflective space art creates will help to connect children to the subjects we are exploring in very personal ways so that they will choose to tread gently on our planet as they grow.

The Born Free Foundation have worked closely with artist John Dyer, the Last Chance to Paint team and the Eden Project to provide FREE downloadable teaching resources for each chapter of the project. Designed for Key Stage 2 but are very easily adaptable for all Key Stages. Links to Art and Design, Geography, Science, English, SMSC and Citizenship curricula.

Chapter 1- ‘Spirit of the Rainforest’ the Yawanawá tribe of the Amazon

Chapter 2- ‘Person of the Forest’ the Penan tribe of Borneo and Orangutans

 

N.B. Some of the lessons contain links to videos and you will need to make sure that Vimeo is accessible to your computer to see these. The videos can also be watched on the ‘Art Inspiration’ tab above.

Yes! Although we are based in the UK we want this to be an international project and connect many nationalities together through art.
