A black and white illustration of a Hindu deity with four arms and an elephant-like head. He is sitting crossed-legged. There is a bowl of food and a small mouse beside him.


The word illuminate has three definitions:

  1. light up or brighten
  2. decorate or adorn
  3. clarify or reveal

The objective for this coloring activity is not simply for the student to color the work of art, but to illuminate it!


Arguably the most popular of the Hindu gods, this guy is pretty special. He is the remover of all obstacles and the god you go to before beginning any task or adventure. He not only has the head of an elephant, but he rides around the universe on a tiny little rat.
