Artist study...Students studied four different artists: Da Vinci, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Warhol. They were asked to draw a contour line drawing of one piece of fruit of their choice. Once the drawing was completed they created four works of art representing the four artists. Ask your child about each artist, they should be able to tell you about each of them in detail.
Ming Vases-this lesson has a ton of great vocabulary: warm and cool (watercolors used here), design, narrative (vases design can tell a story) bonsai/cherry blossom trees, shadow, symmetry, abstract. This seems like a GREAT lesson.
