WALT: Explore the features of Henri Rousseau's paintings.


Success Criteria

  • I can look carefully at his paintings and discuss my observations.
  • I can identify key features found in his paintings.
  • I can use the key features to draw/paint a plant in Rousseau's style.


Today in Art we are continuing our topic of the French artist, Henri Rousseau. What can you remember about him from last week? This week, we are exploring his paintings in more detail and identifying the key features. What are similiar about his paintings? How would you describe the style of his paintings?


I would like you to get inspired by Rousseau and draw or paint a plant in his style. As an extra challenge, you can extend your drawing and include a detailed background of plants and trees. 


Feel free to submit this work to me too – I would love to see them!
