We began learning about Monet today. We talked about how he liked to make his paintings look less detailed looking and make the viewer feel like they were in the actual places he was painting. We were then invited to use acrylic paint to make our own versions of some of Monet’s paintings. Little Lego […]

Amanda introduced us to Picasso today! We had a group time where we identified the parts of the face that specific body parts belong. Amanda then showed us some examples of Picasso’s art.
