What an awesome first week of Monet and Me classes for the Fall semester! We had so much fun kicking off our after-school classes. It was great catching up with returning students and to meeting new ones!
This week our curriculum focused on the very famous European artist, Vincent Van Gogh. A legend for not only cutting off his ear, but for his painting style, Impressionism. His use of short, small brushstrokes are seen throughout his work. He is also known for using color to express his feelings. He painted with dark and cool colors when sad and bright, warm colors when happy.
The students recreated one of his most famous pieces, "Sunflowers," using watercolor and ink. They had a blast learning impressionist techniques while displaying their creativity their composition. The students did an amazing job making Van Gogh masterpieces as well as making new friends!
Stay tuned for more on after school curriculum. It's going to be an awesome semester!
