Welcome to the Jungle! Henri Rousseau Paintings
Third and fourth grade artists studied the painintngs of Henri Rousseau. We specifically looked at his lush jungle paintings. They used acrylic paints on canvas board to create jungle landscapes. We learned about foreground, middle ground and background and we also focused on mixing different shades and tints of green, rather than using the green paint straight from the bottle.
