Our art this week takes a bit of inspiration from our stormy weather. I introduced the Picassos to the artist Winslow Homer and we looked at lots of his paintings of the sea. Children generally want to paint the ocean blue, but Homer's work really shows all the varied colours the ocean can be!
This piece, which I'm calling Calm after the Storm was loads of fun because we used different media and techniques. I like highlighting that art can be made with different materials and in different ways, sometimes in a single piece! Here we used watercolours, tempera and acrylic paints and they used brushes and even cardboard chips as tools! The only limit on what or how you create is your imagination!
My Tuesday Picassos and I were in the mood for a little more oomph so we used Tempera paints for the sky and ocean.
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 :)
