Romero Britto!

Today was Short French Day which provided us with a wonderful opportunity to begin our study of Brazil! After Alice and Lucas taught us some key Portuguese vocabulary (Oi, Ola, Tchau), we learned about a famous Brazillian artist named Romero Britto. Britto is an artist who uses lots of bright colours and patterns in his work and is known for painting in a  Pop Art style! We found out that Pop Art is a style of art that uses simple and bold images of everyday items, painted in bright colours. Here are a few of Britto's paintings:

Here are a few of the Britto-inspired Pop Art dogs the students began today. Tomorrow they will paint over each different patterned section using watercolours!
