In Art, Year 4 have been learning about the artist Henri Rousseau. We found out that he was born in France in 1844 and was a post impressionist artist. Although he had never visited a rainforest, he loved to paint them and many of his paintings were inspired by the different plants that grow there and animals that live there. We practised painting in his style using lots of different tones and shades of green. Then we recreated one of his most famous painting ‘Tiger in a Tropical Storm (Suprised!)’. Mrs Myers was so pleased with the results she put them on display in the classroom!
