Seems as though I recall Hockney doing the same with the "Pool"
series too. Actually you could take any master or present
painter/artist and see how they view time in their work. Through
time clocks through time in painting (light ,Dark),be sure and look
at windows,clocks,mirrors etc. in the paintings. You could explore
Stonehenge(sp)and other monuments,(how native people and their
culture used to tell time).
As for younger grades also bring into the room picture books,
i.e."Goodnight Moon" etc. They can explore in several different
or just one. Have an exercise, where they draw the same Object(tree)
during different times of the day.

Good Luck.
