Henri Rousseau


Henri Rousseau wants to be an artist.  Not a single person has ever told him he is talented.  He's a toll collector.  He's forty years old.  But he buys some canvas, paint and brushes and starts painting anyway.


Follow the link to listen to Rousseau's amazing life story and afterwards follow the fun collage activity led by the National Gallery to produce your very own Rousseau inspired art-work. 


Don't forget to email your art-work to the Dolphin Class email address.
