Art Inspired by RouseauOakwood Primary School attend Sir John Hunt for two afternoons to create their own work inspired by the Artist Henri Rousseau. They looked at Art by Rousseau and produced their own jungle scenes using wax resist and coloured paper they had decorated with inks. Students hadn’t used either of the techniques before so it was great for them to learn new skills.
All of the students produced really interesting and exciting work that they were proud of. It was lovely to see all the students engage with the new techniques, they couldn’t wait to show me their work. Their class teacher said it was such a great experience for the students to work in the art room and they were so excited to come back for the 2nd session.
