Work by Diane Stinebaugh, an art teacher at Fayetteville High School, is included in the new book, If Picasso Went To The Zoo.
The book is a collection of poems and illustrations from 50 teachers from around the world. It’s the follow-up to Eric Gibbons’ 2014 book If Picasso Had a Christmas Tree.
For their part, each teacher emulated an historical artist and included an alliterative animal in a way that honors the work of that artist.
By combining art, history, science (zoology) and poetry, this book becomes a unique resource for inter-curricular teaching. A combination of art genres is used, from the Renaissance era to modern works, which may bear little resemblance to zoo animals! These art teachers, from elementary level to high school, created these delightful illustrations to share and educate.
