Bennett and Kate

This is also going to be a super class. Kate and Bennett both appreciate art so much. I am blessed to be their art teacher. I enjoy these 2 young artists very much. We started class with an Art History lesson. Still in the Early Renaissance – note AH category on blog. We all learned a new word – “magnificat.” I had never studied this Botticelli painting. I love introducing works to the kids that I haven’t studied in the past. I so enjoy learning more AH:))) They also learned the term – “tondo” – it comes from the word “rotunda.” Bennett worked on his palette knife painting of his grandmother’s property. He will be done next week! I promise! He has been so patient with all the layering. Bennett will continue to work on his illuminated manuscript after this painting. Kate finished her illuminated manuscript except for going over some lines with a Sharpie. She is very proud of her manuscript. Kate’s work is always so neat. I gave a pat on the back for that. Kate will start a new project next week. She will paint an acrylic nonobjective abstract on watercolor paper. We looked a several Kandinsky paintings. After painting the abstract, Kate will cut the painting up into 1″ squares and assemble it randomly creating another nonobjective abstract. Way way cool! Enjoy the pics:)
