a little bit of Impressionism [Back to Gallery]
Years 3,4,5,6 are looking at still life, and because we as a school will be concentrating on Healthy Foods such as Fruit & Vegetables we are starting with Monet...who started the day with a cold bath, marmalade on toast, blue cheese and some cold ham with a cup of tea. Ate lunch at 11.30 on the dot so he could work long afternoons on his lillies and was often visited by a one legged sparrow at the table for the crumbs
See if you can spot him in the following works that are still being created?
Monet often set out to paint in his little boat that had a cover like a cubby house for him to sit in comfort and create from the water.
All students were shown the footage of Monet painting beside his pond and lillies with his white coat, hat and huge pallet with all his brushes plus his various animals running around...we will be looking at Cezanne's still life too BUT next week is a surprise as we are creating with BANANAS!!!
