April - Andrew Wyeth


Are you ready to study a realistic painter again? After the abstract shapes of Matisse and the surreal qualities of Kahlo's work, this artist is going to be a big change.

Andrew Wyeth comes from a long line of famous artists, and his work is easy to find. Take some time this week to study the painting below. There is a story that goes along with this painting, and I'll share it with you on Tuesday. See if your family can make up their own stories. You might even be right!

We are going to be making pins this week. I hope you will all be able to join us to plant some flowers at 6:30 Tuesday April 17th. I will have directions available on Tuesday. There is plenty of room to play, so bring some comfortable shoes and join the fun!

To make your pin you will need:
  • One 9x12" sheet of white construction paper
  • One 9x12" sheet of construction paper (any color) to cut for a stencil
  • Colored pencils
  • Crayons
  • Scissors
  • Pencil (any kind)
  • optional - masking tape to hold your stencil in place
See you this Tuesday, April 10th at 6:30 for class!
