Fine Art in the Library
Here are some photos from the Fine Art in the Library class I am teaching at the Leduc Public Library. It's a 6 week class for kids ages 10 and up. We'll be learning about six famous artists with six very distinct styles.
There were 13 kids at this week's lesson which was on Vincent Van Gogh.
We used pastels which the kids really enjoyed ~ especially when it messed up their hands.
Everyone chose to either work from Starry Night or one of Vincent Van Gogh's sunflower paintings.
The students were thrilled when Vincent even made a personal appearance in the form of an action figure!
Next week we'll be learning about Matisse. It promises to be a fun and substantially less messy experience when we do some "cut out" art.
