To finish off our study of climates (last half term) we each painted a tropical rain-forest scene in the style of famous artist, Henri Rousseau.
"Nothing makes me happier than to observe nature and paint what I see"
- Henri Rousseau (1844 - 1910)
This quote is interesting as Rousseau drew all his jungle scenes without having ever been to one himself. Instead, he used the pictures he saw in textbooks as a guide.
Come and take a look outside our classroom for the finished paintings!
