E. Manet Still Lifes, F. Marc Blue Lions, & M. Chagall Memories

Over the last two months, we have looked at the paintings and still lifes of Realist/Impressionist Edouard Manet, the colorful horses of the Blue Rider’s Franz Marc, and the surrealistic memories of Marc Chagall. Our students learned about tertiary colors while painting the yellow-greens of bananas, apples, and pears in their own still lifes. Instead of horses like Franz Marc, I thought it would be fun to give some lions personality in our paintings. The artists were given blue, white, and black to paint them while learning that a color+white is called a tint and a color+black is a shade. I let their memories and imaginations soar after viewing Marc Chagall’s “I and the Village.” This is a personal favorite of mine and I loved sharing it with the young artists. Every child’s paintings were so different with a special moment illustrated in their tempera painting. Enjoy!IMG_0490
