  • Japanese Bridge Paintings

    Posted by Jessica Cavaliere on 5/20/2016

    Monet was a prominent Impressionist artist working in France in the late 1800’s-early 1900’s. Impressionism is a style of art that often focuses on landscape. Impressionist artists worked to capture the moment and especially the changing light of different times of day and different seasons. Monet painted his Japanese Bridge many times, examining how the colors changed although the subject remains the same. Fourth grade artists learned to work from the background to the foreground in these paintings. They imitated the loose, brushy style of Impressionist art, using the same subject matter as Monet.

  • Medieval Castles

    Posted by Jessica Cavaliere on 5/13/2016

     

     

    Third grade artists studied castles from around the world using the Morris Museum Loan Program.  Students centered their studies on the English Medieval castles, built over 600 years ago.  Artists drew castles, adding details to tell a story, and painted their work using metallic watercolors.
