At the end of the story, Julian and his nana go to a carnival where everyone is dressed up. Everyone is able to be whoever or whatever they want, without judgement. Julian is at his happiest at this point in the story.
In art, we learned about an artist called Michael Anthony Simon. He creates sculptures with actual spider's webs! He was in Korea when he had the idea after discovering the intricate webs spun by the Nephila Clavata spider. He catches the spiders and takes them back to his studio where he sets up some plastic poles and waits for them to spin their webs. Once the spiders have finished, he returns them to their natural habitat. He strengthens the webs with a lacquer spray and colours them. We thought this was really cool!
We created some colourful spider's web art of our own.
