Hello Grade 5 students!
We discussed some of the changes that occurred in science & technology around the time of the Impressionists, specifically the advent of photography.
You had some interesting opinions about how the camera might have affected the artists of that time. Suffice to say there was a big CHANGE in the art world as the 19th century became the 20th century.
Today in art class you will begin creating your own landscape picture, one which will also focus on the concept of CHANGE. You will need to use your powers of observation!
Please follow these instructions for Part One of the project — read & observe the images you see here:
If you have finished drawing your landscape, check with Mr. Reed for the next step and instructions (your imagination will now come into play).
