Session II Inspired by the Sea

July 16, 2018

 Artists, writers, poets and musicians have forever been inspired by the sea. This week we looked to Matisse who was one of them. When he was older and could no longer paint he created beautiful lyrical pieces from paper that  echoed the  shapes and forms  near his home in Nice, France. This was our starting off point  for paintings, prints,  coral sculptures and the wonderful mural about preserving marine life and coral reefs . We are always busy and messy so it is hard to stop to get photos of all of the creativity, especially the sculpture and painting projects, which  involved a lot of process and layering to achieve the great results. The students were very patient and in between we took breaks to explore and play outside. We also  made rainbows with a prism and learned about light and the color spectrum,  and discussed the  factors that cause colors to separate into a  rainbow. Thanks to all of you for a great week and I look forward to  seeing most of you and some new faces in the upcoming sessions.

 Week One: Cave Paintings

It has been an eventful week in our Art Literacy class. We have been all around the world.  I would like to thank all of my wonderful students for their great efforts. We began with the story of the discovery of the discovery of cave paintings in Lascaux,  France  and also looked at images from  Spain , where the oldest known cave paintings have been found,  in the cave called El Castillo. The prehistoric dots and crimson hand stencils are now the world's oldest known cave art that dates more than 40,800 years old.
