If I Could Talk to the Animals...

....I'd love to talk to the ones created in art class last week! We learned about Henri Rousseau. We looked at some of his tiger pictures, monkeys and apes. Most of them were in the jungle. The students were asked to chose an animal and place it in an environment. I wanted them to try to show some objects in front and some behind the animal to show its position in its surroundings.

All of the kids worked hard, and I was very impressed with the outcomes. This was the first time I've lead this project, and at the end of the hour, some of the kids were already discussing which animal they'll do the next time they take my class....I guess it's a keeper!
