This is our third week of looking at the famous Fauvist artist ~
We enjoyed a lovely simple art appreciation lesson ~
I used Charlotte Mason’s approach and asked Miss. L10 to look closely at the picture for a few minutes. Then she tried to describe the picture with as much detail that she could …
… the tall cylindrical shape of the gold-fish bowl
… the number and color of the fish
… the reflection of the fish in the surface of the water
… the pink round table
… the blue railings on the balcony
… the leaves and flowers of the flower pots
… the black and grey background
She and I happily painted the outline picture that I traced.
We took our time and listened to our Famous Composer Tchaikovsky as we painted.
A simple, relaxed art appreciation lesson.
Will you give it a try? Here are Matisse’s famous quotes, some art works and the Goldfish outline ~
