This could be tied-in with a lesson on Impressionism:
Mary Cassatt was born in Philadelphia in 1844. (She died in 1926). She =
became one of the most influential artists of her time. Despite her =
family's opposition, she entered the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts =
in 1861 (one of the first academies to admit women.) She afterward went =
to Paris to further her training. Between 1874 and 1877 her work was =
exhibited in the Paris Salon. Edgar Degas was so struck by her artistry =
that he asked her to join his circle of impressionists. She was =
influenced by other French Impressionists =3D Manet and Courbet. By =
1890 she was ranked as one of the foremost painters in Paris. Equally =
important was her printmaking which was heavily influenced by Japanese =
artists. Failing eyesight forced her to stop painting 1914.
I would probably do a pastel lesson in association with the above.
