It was great to see these young artists yesterday afternoon. Presley came back to the studio yesterday after a very busy summer. It was super good to see her. We started class with an Art History lesson – Early Renaissance. Note AH category. We also studied several of Mondrian’s paintings. The artists created their own Mondrian painting with construction paper and black tempera paint. I emphasized the vertical and the horizontal directions of mondrian’s paintings. The paintings turned out really cool. Presley worked on her painting of some country property they own. She was excited about painting again. Trey worked on his nonobjective abstract painting. I discussed with Trey the project – we will cut up the painting when done and glue it back together randomly. Lucy worked on her Mondrian the whole time. She paid special attention to the arranging of the shapes. Taylor worked on her rhino animalito. She is finishing the decorating. All Taylor has to do now is outline all the designs in black. Enjoy the pics and have a great weekend.
