Quarantine Art History Lesson | George Seurat

By | April 17th, 2020|

Hello and welcome to day 5 of the art history lessons! We have had a fun week of learning about different artists and movements and practicing the techniques at home. Art is such an important part of my life. So far we've learned that it's a way to communicate how we are feeling, a way to process how we are feeling (and hopefully let out some frustrations or emotions that we have bottled up). Learning about the history of art is important too. So that we can see who created what techniques and how they were implemented or received.

Quarantined Art History | Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas is one of my other personal favorites! I love the way he paints the ballerinas, which he is famous for. So we're touching briefly on Impressionism, which there are several other artists who do this same style. And we're also talking a little on inspiration. I've started adding a "discussion" section, which there isn't room to write answers, so that you begin to learn to discuss your feelings on the artist and their work. Remember, there are no right or wrong answers when it comes to discussing art. Whatever you think about a piece is valid thinking!

Quarantined Art History | Joan Miró

Third day of learning more about art and history! My daughter has been interested in different styles of art. A couple weeks ago she mentioned doing artwork that purposely looked "bad", so that reminded me of good old Joan. Download and print these art history lessons (we now have 3!) to do with your kiddos or yourself! If you end up doing any of them, share with me what you've done!
