Painting and Painters
In the classroom, we are studying painting and painters. We are becoming young art critics, discussing and enjoying many painting styles, and learning about Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Vincent Van Gogh. Of course, we are also trying lots of painting and drawing. Today we made self-portraits, and later in the week, we will study “Starry Night”, and try painting a little bit like Van Gogh. We have been getting a good laugh out of the book, “When Pigasso met Mootisse” by Nina Laden. Another book we love is “Frida” by Jonah Winter, although that one is more thoughtful and serious.
