(Can this be used for a high school fine arts credit? YES! Click HERE for more information.)
Paper Jungle includes an in-depth art history focus on the style of Henri Rousseau, explores related art elements (shape, space, color) and art principles (grounds, scale, layering), and uses a variety of media. Biblical content is woven into every lesson.
Here’s a brief clip from Paper Jungle:
