"Vases" by Goose
We began a study of Impressionism this week. As you can see the kids really enjoyed it!
We talked about the birth of Impressionism in Paris.
We looked at Claude Monet's Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise.)
We admired Caillebotte, Cassatt, Cezanne, Degas, Manet, Renoir and Sisley.
We talked about light and color. And moving the canvas in plein air, outside, to really capture sunlight in the painting.
We looked at the short, broken brushstrokes used by Impressionists.
And then they painted!
Since we weren't able to get outside, Goose chose some vases to paint.
Binky chose his favorite Star Wars character, Boba Fett, to paint.
His helmet, actually.
Hey, at least I got him painting!!
I LOVE how they turned out!!!
Next time we'll paint outside in the sun.
