Talking Pictures for Children 

Talking Pictures is an online resource for children and their adults based on artwork from the Crawford Art Gallery Collection. We will share creative prompts for happy talk and play every Wednesday.

About the artwork
This printed artwork was made by Jan De Fouw, a Dutch designer and illustrator who made his home in Ireland in 1951. He loved to draw animals and delighted audiences with his light-hearted cartoons and magazine illustrations.  

What is a print?
A print is a design or pattern transferred from one surface to another, think of a shoe print, a hand print or a potato print! Jan De Fouw made his picture of a rhino on a small sheet of metal, this was covered with ink and pressed on paper.
