A black and white illustration of a female Hindu deity with long black hair and four arms. She is playing a stringed instrument with two of her hands, holding beads in one hand, and holding a book in the other. There is a duck and a stack of books beside her.


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!


She is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, learning, and music. And yes, she’s a total rock star! When she isn’t buried in a book or inspiring great minds, she is playing the veena (ancient Indian instrument) into the late hours of the night. She is the symbol of the intelligent, independent woman.
