In elementary art classes this week, we combined lessons on Paul Cezanne with an autumn theme art project - apples. Paul Cezanne (1839- 1906), was born in France. Cezanne used layers of color to build up surfaces. Most of Cezanne's work is considered post-impressionism. He produced over 900 oil paintings and 400 watercolors. We studied Cezanne's still life paintings and made our own apple paintings. Upper elementary traced apple shapes (or could choose to draw their own) and created backgrounds using lines, patterns, and watercolor paint.
HIGH SCHOOL ART
In high school art we continued our study of COLOR THEORY. Students mixed primary colors to create secondary and tertiary colors. With those colors they painted a color wheel. Students went on to mix primary colors, plus black and white to create 100 unique colors.
