Trip to Colchester Zoo - Art

I love outdoor art, especially when it is unexpected and unpretencious.  Art that s colourful, fun, that you can get near to and don't have to worry that your kids will touch and get you told off.  Good examples have been at Kew Gardens or one of my favourite places, The Eden Project in Cornwall (Harlequin Sister also collects images of street art that I really like on her blog here).

Colchester Zoo had lots of examples of art in different mediums both sculpture and paintings, some with facts for kids.  I enjoyed spotting these and they also made good backdrops for photos of the kids to send to their grandparents. (including when they climbed up to sit on the cheetah).
