Get creative with Toulouse-Lautrec

Collage activity for Toulouse-Lautrec
Draw a dancing figure on plain paper, an interesting outline or a 'silhouette' and try out a rubbing technique. Your artwork can be made from materials that many of you will have at home!

Moulin Rouge performers
Toulouse-Lautrec was a French artist who drew dancers and circus performers. One of the dancers always wore a top hat. Have a go at creating your own finger puppet.

Super silhouettes
Lots of artists use silhouettes and simple shadows in their work. Have a go at your own using coloured paper.

Dancing figure
Print off the template and create your own dancing figure inspired by our Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition. 

Print with polystyrene
Toulouse-Lautrec and his friends printed beautiful posters in Paris in the 1890s. You can recycle polystyrene from pizza packaging to make a printing block.

Jane Avril's snake
Toulouse-Lautrec painted a dancer called Jane Avril wearing a special dress, decorated with a long, 3D (pretend) snake. The artist used bright colours such as red, yellow and blue. Create your picture using paint or use felt pens.
