We have constant, special reminders of Wilderness Safaris stalwart, and Children in the Wilderness chairman (and greatest supporter), Russel Friedman, who sadly passed away in February 2018. Russel was instrumental in the implementation of our programme, both the day-to-day ins and outs, and the big picture of how to achieve our goals. His passion, drive and influence are missed every day.
One of Russel’s initiatives was the creation of these beautiful colouring-in books – Draw What You Saw with artist Dov Fedler. This project was very close to Russel’s heart. Here are a few snaps of some of our children from Mabolwe Primary School enjoying these wonderful colouring-in books in an Eco-Club session earlier this week:
Dov Fedler has been a leading South African cartoonist for over 50 years. This book shows you his basic method of drawing and encourages you to see and draw things with your own creativity. Dov believes that anyone can learn how to draw, sometimes you just have to see things differently.
