2nd Grade Rousseau Jungle Collages
Last week, the 2nd graders finished their jungle collages! Their artwork was inspired by the artist Henri Rousseau who loved painting jungle scenes from his imagination. We read a book about Rousseau and learned about his life and the history of his art work. During this project, we started off each every class by filling in the definition of collage on the board: "Using many art materials to create one piece of art!" The second graders were masters of collage by the end of this project as they practiced drawing, coloring, painting, cutting, and glueing to make their masterpieces!
Marisol hard at work!
