On Sat., Nov. 19, we spent the morning looking at John Constable’s 6-foot painting of Stratford Mill in the gallery.
We looked at how he painted the sky and foliage as well as how he moved his brush with paint in his “Cloud Studies” before making our own 3D creation while sitting in front of the artwork.
Next, we made our own landscape paintings in the class room. We used brushes and aluminum foil to create marks on our paper.
Fun was had by all.
Happy holidays to all and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday, Feb. 18 for the first Exploring Artism of 2017.
