We hope that everyone had a great Silver Week holidays! For our returning class, students studied more about individual iconic artists; today’s focus was Japan’s own Hokusai!

Hokusai, an artist from the age of 6 (just like most of our students at Annex), rose in fame due to his detailed, historic and dramatic art works. Students recreated the famous Great Wave of Kanagawa; depicting giant waves crashing over land and the iconic Mt. Fuji in the background.

Students first sketched out the waves, sea foam and then Mt Fuji before layering over water colors paints. Finding the right balance of water to paint ratio was a fun challenge for the students with some very excellent results!

Today was also the start of Reading Challenge at Annex! A reminder that students should be studying Levels 1-4 each day so that they can complete their reading goals!
