Rousseau Jungle Animals
In this lesson, we study the artist Henri Rousseau. Rousseau grew up in a very poor household but always loved art. While he never took art lessons or went to art school, he was passionate about it and practiced in his spare time. He is specifically known for his jungle paintings. He drew from pictures and pamphlets because he never physically went to the jungle. During this lesson, Studnets study Rousseau, then use oil pastels to drw a jungle animal of thier choice. I will teach them how to drw a few jungle animals (breaking them down into easy shapes) after learning about artist. Students are asked to draw big and fill up the whole page!!!!
