I saw Jack yesterday and today. He had a make up class on Monday. Jack is always so happy to come into the studio. His class is at 8:15 a.m. so I am still waking up. His smile definitely wakes me up. Jack made a huge fall leaf out of tissue paper and glue. He used fall colors in the leaf. Jack’s favorite color is green so he used A LOT of green. For Art History we studied “Napoleon Crossing the Swiss Alps” by Jacques Louis David, early 1800′s. I told Jack that Napoleon was a military leader and a emperor of France. He informed me that Napoleon was definitely a PIRATE! If you will note Napoleon’s hat, I think that is why Jack decided he was a pirate:) We found France on the globe along with the 5 oceans. After finishing his leaf, Jack worked on his farm scene. We looked at a farm painting by Edward Hicks 1780-1849. We identified all the animals. Jack finished his farm painting by adding details with black paint. Ummm, the objects may need identification on the back of the canvas, BUT I am sure Jack knows what everything is in the scene. I will varnish his painting and he can take it home next week.
