WELL, OOPS!--she wants me to go from figure drawing to IMPRESSIONISM and
painting, instead. Can anyone help me find a decent transition from figure
drawing to the impressionistic painting?
I thought about creating monotypes (using paint) rather than "just paint" but I
can't really find a focus point for the lesson. I believe this school typically
has had the students pick an image from a magazine and then they paint it four
times (once using pointillism, once using Van Gogh type strokes, etc.)--I
apologize in advance if any of you conduct a similar assignment, but it strikes
me as incredibly DULL--too much like a "drill for skill" lesson rather than
higher-order thinking and creating. (Sorry.)
So-o-o-o, I'm writing to request ideas for successful, engaging,
thought-provoking lesson ideas related to impressionism and painting
(tempera)... what has been successful in your classes?
Thanks for your help!
