A black and white illustration of a Hindu deity with long black hair, a half-moon on his head, and a snake around his neck. He is sitting crossed-legged with a small drum and a trident spear next to 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!


As one of the main Hindu gods, this guy is super powerful. He is known as the Destroyer and his body is gray from being covered in ashes. He loves to dance, and when he’s not doing yoga on the mountain tops of the Himalayas, you can find him meditating or drumming in the jungle wearing tiger skin!
