Paul Cezanne

Working on still lifes with my younger elementary class.  We practiced setting up a still life and drawing it, then studied Paul Cezanne and his portraits, landscapes and still lifes, then created a plate of apples with acrylic, water colors and crayons.

Claude Monet

I love teaching about the artist and the little quirky things that they do.  Claude Monet took his paints, paintbrushes, pallets and canvases onto his little boat and had a floating art studio in the middle of the water he could pull up to any water scene and be right there and paint a picture of it in his boat. Sometimes the water with splash up onto his canvases.

A trip to the Broad

If you haven't gone, make reservations now.  This display of modern and contemporary art is so inspiring.  I loved that you could stop in on the second floor and see the vault, where the art cache is housed.  And, the attendants were so knowledgeable about the collection.

Gearing up for some art history

I am looking forward to teaching some hands on art lessons with art history content, from ancient cave, Mycenaean, and Egyptian to Modern Contemporary.
