Grades 5 - 7 only
Students will become familiar with the unique influence of six 20th century artists, and will compose a piece in the artist's distinctive style. Each week we will create a new piece using a variety of media: pencil, watercolors, tempera, oil pastels, cut paper. We will look closely at the different aspects and influences in each artist's life, and familiarize ourselves with the technique and style of each work. Students are expected to fully participate in each lesson. Artists studied: Hokusai, Matisse, Klee, Kandinsky, Close, Kusama.
