Ted Harrison ~ culture and colour

In Class 5, we learned about
Canadian (and living!) artist,
Ted Harrison.

Harrison has always enjoyed painting his surroundings
and the environment around him.

In his early career,
Harrison used a sombre palette.
Later on, however, inspired by

the Canadian landscape around him,
he started painting in
bright colours with bold, but simple lines.

In this class, students were asked to bring photos
of their homes.

Everyone enjoyed creating a colourful representation of their homes. I heard some were even planning on framing their masterpieces!

Homework for this class is to create another drawing of a famous Canadian landmark in Harrison-like style ~ can't wait to see what everyone creates!
