Second grade Henry Rousseau jungle animals

2nd grade artists have been learning about the life and work of the artist Henri Matisse. He loved the jungle, even though he was never able to visit one in his lifetime, and drew many jungle animals. We drew animals like giraffes, lions, tigers, birds etc. and used blending in our painting techniques, showed we understood the art element of space by overlapping our leaves and animals, and also chose different values of leaves to create variety in our artworks. 

Learning Goals: 
*I can talk about the life and art of Henri Rousseau
* I can use overlapping in my leaves to show space
* I can use blending techniques to create color and value on my animal
