It's Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago so I wanted to bring some of our traditional mas characters into the art room today. There is such a wide variety to choose from but I settled on the colourful and bombastic Pierrot Grenade as much for the glorious use of colour as for this character's notorious oratory skill!
So we talked a little about the characters they were familiar with and then watched this video of a Pierrot Grenade in action :)
I also wanted them to see some images of artwork created by local artist Rebecca Foster. She has rendered the Pierrot Grenade masterfully and this is what we used as inspiration for our work today!

Thursday Picassos take on the Pierrot Grenade!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
