Thai Mythical Creature Drawing
Art is the representation of cultural views, beliefs, and practices. Art helps to understand and interpret a culture that may be hard to relate to. Furthermore, it can be a medium that bridges gaps between different societies. During their Thai Culture and Language lessons, our Grade 7 students learned about mythical creatures in Thailand such as Naga, Garuda, and Singha. After reading related literature and discussing similarities and differences between western and Thai mythical creatures, the students then drew their own favorite mythical creatures on cloth bags.
