Base 4 worked with Mrs Cador in their art and literacy lessons last week to explore The Great Wave off Kanagawa by the Japanese artist Hokusai and to learn about his life. 'The Great Wave' is the print that inspired the front cover of Base 4's new class story, Kensuke's Kingdom.

The children chose part of the print to interpret using a small window frame. They then experimented with a range of media to reproduce the image: sketching pencils, graphite, water-colour, oil pastel, chalk pastel, acrylic paint, collage or a combination.

You can see how successful the children were in recreating the print or parts of it in the photos.
