This week’s art lesson was a little bit different than the previous ones; rather than stating a technique that was being focused on, it was the style of a particular artist, in this case, Georges Rouault.
The kids were to first hand-draw a playing card, and both chose to use kings. (We did get a king out for reference, but they adapted the design to their own preferences.) Next, they painted over the contour lines with a washed-out black paint, intended to give the impression of leading between panes in a stained-glass window. Finally, they “double-loaded” their paintbrushes with two colors at a time, to fill in the spaces. This would give a variable look to the “glass”.
No in-progress pics this week; they did art when I was unavailable to play photographer.
