KS1 Artist Day – Henri Rousseau

Key Stage One have spent the day learning about and being inspired by the artist Henri Rousseau!

They attended an Assembly this morning about the life of Rousseau where they learnt some interesting facts about him as well as looking at some of his pieces of work. This was followed by a sketching workshop and then an afternoon of painting.

During the sketching workshop they were shown how to draw a tiger, some birds and various jungle scenes in the style of Rousseau.  They then used these skills to draw and paint their own jungle pictures in the afternoon.  The children thoroughly enjoyed their Art day and should be proud of the art work they produced.
