Last term Grade 3 and 4 students created these exquisite Japanese inspired lanterns. As a class, we looked at the work of master woodblock printing artist Hokusai. Students were inspired by Hokusai’s artwork and the natural landscapes of Japan. The focus for the artwork was on composition and harmony, as well as the elements of construction and mathematics. The students should be so proud of their work and the advanced skills they had to learn to complete these complicated artworks. There will be a display coming soon!
