january art group

At this month's art group, we looked at still life in pastels, inspired by Van Gogh's sunflowers and Cezanne's Still Life with Apples and Oranges. A vase of flowers and a bowl of fruit were set up and the children could choose which they wanted to draw, using pastels. Tess chose the flowers, and produced a drawing which was very true to the colours in the flowers used. Brodie maybe slightly missed the point of the exercise and drew a train entering a tunnel, but there's nothing like knowing your strong points!!! Tess wrote her name and Brodie's name and their ages on the artwork. Tess's drawing was taken off to be part of a display that FareGos (the home ed group) was setting up in a local library.
