We read "Night of the Gargoyles" by Eve Bunting, illustrated by David Weisner. We talked about the mood of the story and looked at the creepy black and white illustrations of gargoyles.
We also looked at "View of Toledo" by El Greco. This painting also captures a creepy mood and it is easy to imagine mystical stone gargoyles on the castle in the background.
Artists used black and white charcoal to create their own original gargoyle creatures.
