Tunnel Books

Fourth Graders looked at the art of Henri Rousseau.  Rousseau is famous for his paintings of jungle scenes.  After studying the life and work of this artist students discussed the idea of creating depth in an artwork.  In order to make a picture look deep artists include 3 parts: foreground, middle ground and background.  Students designed there own jungle scenes on three different open rectangles; creating a foreground, middle ground and background.  Once complete we looked at various examples of tunnel books (including one of my own creations)  and glued our rectangles to accordion folded papers to create our own books
