Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris experience: art in the jungle (for kids)Back
Conducted by Noel Rodrigo's Leopard Safaris in their campsites in Wilpattu and Yala, this private art class is a great way to keep kids occupied and entertained while parents relax or when they want to venture out into the wild, leaving the kids behind.
Two art programs are on offer for children between the ages of 3-6 years and 7-12 years. The first class is a one hour art class between the game drives and aimed at the 3-6 year olds. This class would include lessons on how to make stick/coconut rafts, water color butterflies, rock painting, thumb print pictures, leaf prints (on linen bags/t-shirts) and how to identify tree rubbings. The second class is a three hour art class instead of a game drive (parents can leave their kids at the camp). This class is aimed at the 7-12 year olds and covers seed art, wire drawings, rock painting, leaf prints (on linen bags/t-shirts and jewelry making of seeds.
About the Host
Your host is an artist who originally hails from Germany. Ever since she came to Sri Lanka and met her partner, the famous ‘leopard man’ of Sri Lanka, she has been able to combine two of her greatest interests, painting and nature, into one big passion. Your host makes mainly charcoal drawings and acrylic paintings of the wild animals or of encounters with wild animals that she had in the jungle. Now your host shares her passion and transmits it to children visiting Noel Rodrigo’s Leopard Safaris Yala and Wilpattu camps.
