I am fascinated by the way we all see things differently. This applies to children as well as adults. My coworker, Lori, does an art project with her second-grade students. From a video lesson they use chalk to create their own toucan pictures. So many interesting differences.

These are the thin and elegant toucans. They keep their personal space very large. They are very independent.

These toucans are much closer. And one seems to be the leader. Is he giving out orders? Or perhaps special honors?

I think we are witnessing a fight for power in this group. I wonder who will win?

Father, Mother and Babies?

This has to be the Women's Social Hour. Lots of pink!

This final group looks to be the most equal of all the groups. Perhaps they have found a way to share power without fighting.

But then again, my interpretations may be mine alone. What stories do you find in each painting?

Is that a toucan up in the tree, Mr. Giraffe #18?
