The Picassos delved into my favorite era today... the Impressionist Era! The 1980s were golden for music and the 1800s produced some of the greatest artists of all time... simple facts in my humble opinion! 🤓 (oxymoron much 😀)
Anyway, we talked about how art was changed by these artists both in terms of subject matter and in terms of style and then they attempted this little number by Claude Monet.
It's called The Isle Grande Jatte and it was completed in 1878. Notice how you can see some houses across the river as well as a distant field and how Monet uses small brushstrokes and lots of tints and shades so we can imagine the light pouring through those trees and we can feel the way the artist felt standing there squinting in the sun and capturing it all for us to admire centuries later.
Take a look at how my little artists did 😀
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
