Weeks 4 -Degas Horses / 2nd-4th

20 08 2010

August 23-August 27

Edgar Degas was a master impressionistic artist that had a passion for horses.  Students will explore the artwork of Degas depicting images of horses and brush up on their drawing skills by drawing horses in a realistic manner. We will create a background for our horses using colored tissue paper and acrylic medium. The last step of the project will be to add our beautifully drawn horses and discuss how magnificent God created them. Our classes will be inspired by examining 3-D figurines of horses as well as watching short video clips of horses in action in front of various landscape backgrounds.  We will learn about landscapes, the center of interest in a work of art, as well as the term background.
