Learning from the Masters

We’re looking at masterworks and learning from the painters who painted them. Since we weathered the pandemic, and the kids had so little freedom last year, I’ve loosened up with the curriculum and am letting the students make more decisions about the mediums and subjects they choose. Sometimes this allows for the artists to make mistakes brought about by their own experimental choices. And as I say often, We learn more from our failures than we do from our successes.
Megan and I donated to the community art collaborative and those hexes will be at the Stephen’s Field installation. Sarah took many weeks to create the painting below of a building in Charleston, SC she saw during April vacation. Gorgeous work!
