Painting With an Elephant is a children’s book inspired by my second trip to Masae Elephant Camp where I spent three days bonding with Thongpetch, the elephant I was to paint with at the end of a Mahout Training Class. Below is a video of the Thongpetch making the painting in the book.
I am an artist and creating a piece of collaborative art with an elephant is something I really wanted to do. The entire process was so amazing that I decided to create a book on the process.
I envisioned adults sitting down with a child on their lap and reading the book together, being amazed at the elephant learning a new painting style.
