Our lessons on abstract art came to a close as we finished our Green Stripe portraits. The class really enjoyed using strange and silly colors on their paintings. It was a nice break from the many realistically-colored portraits we had been working on. Next, we moved on to talk about Sculptures and Statues. The class was quick to pick up on the differences, and even quicker to get to work on some Play-Doh examples. We also made Halloween trees out of paper bags as example sculptures, but they aren’t quite done being painted yet, so those pictures will probably be up by the end of the week.
