Under the Influence-Weeks 8 & 9
I didn't post last week, because I forgot to bring my camera to class. We studied Georgia O'Keeffe. First the kids made tissue paper flowers. Then they made their own flower pictures using pastels. Above, you can see the pictures my kids did. Since I didn't have my camera, I couldn't capture the other kids' masterpieces. But I did this week.
This week we learned about Paul Cézanne. I set up a fruit still life for the kids to draw. They first drew it in pencil. Then they used crayon to add some color. Next, they used watercolors for more color and texture. The crayon and watercolors worked really well together. I think everyone did a fabulous job!
