The Great Wave by Hokusai

6th Class Responses to an Iconic Asian Artwork
The Great Wave by Hokusai

The boys in sixth class were studying Japan last week and for their Friday art activity were tasked with responding to the iconic work by Hokusai, entitled 'The Great Wave at Kanagawa'.

Hokusai's original work was created using a woodblock print and was one of a series of 36 images which featured views of Mount Fuji.

The boys were allowed to respond using whatever materials they had to hand, which lends our collection great variety, since we see responses in pencil sketch, crayon, paint and collage.
