Artist Study: Marc Chagall
In February we learned about Marc Chagall. Between the flu and computer issues, my bulletin board never was completely finished, but we did have a good time!
There are lots of good children's books on Chagall. Marc Chagall: Life is a Dream shows his paintings and talks about them individually, so it is a really nice one for lessons on particular pieces (like the last one pictured here). Look! Really Smart Art is a neat book I found that shows how different artists use different techniques to trick the viewer's eye.
I didn't make a note of the lessons I used, but they all came from my Artists board on Pinterest.
I just realized Jack didn't get around to painting his background. Did I mention how rough February was? We're lucky we got this far!
One week we focused on I and the Village using the book I mentioned above and a lesson plan from Pinterest. I think these turned out really nicely!
Now we're on to Paul Klee!
