School pupils in the US have used printer ink to create a range of interesting jungle-themed artworks. Youngsters at Bell Elementary in North Dakota used blocks of red, orange and blue printer ink, coupled with printing tools like rollers and a baren (which is used to distribute ink evenly), Minot Daily News reports.

The children were given free rein to indulge their imaginations and create whatever they wished. Two-headed snakes, monkeys, sloths and parrots were among the results. Taube Museum of Art's executive director Nancy Walter and education coordinator Margaret Lee oversaw the project, which was funded by the North Dakota Humanities Council and co-sponsored by the Minot Area Council of the Arts.

Ms Lee showed the children a print of Henri Rousseau's painting Exotic Landscape to spark their creativity. Earlier this year, Peter Manoogian, writing for, suggested that pupils with a functioning printer and extra ink cartridges were likely to do well in their studies.
