Paul Cezanne


Post-impressionism.  It sounds like a complicated topic to study, but I'm sure that by the end of our lesson this month it will become something that you not only understand, but are captivated by.

1839-1906

Paul Cezanne is known as the "Father of Modern Art."

This month's project is to design boxes that the children can either choose to keep, or to give away for the holidays.  Each child will need to bring:
  • Scotch 3M clear glue stick - can be shared
  • Scissors - 1 per student
  • Pencil with an Eraser (does not need to be an artist pencil) - 1 per student
  • Several cotton swabs
  • Several paper towels

Don't forget that we have adjusted our calendar a bit because of Christmas, and this month's class is NOT on the 3rd Friday of the Month.  See you on Friday, December 13th, at 6:30!
