A4652: The Artist's Impression in Splash Fall 2022 (Oct. 29, 2022)
For our class, we will start with a 15 minute lecture on the Impressionist movement in the early 20th century. We will go through the rise of the movement and focus on some of the important artists who defined the era ie. Monet, Mary Casssat, etc. We will talk especially about the importance of color, concentrating on Monet’s painting “Impression, Sunrise.” We will also discuss the voices, artists, and subjects that were silenced or subjugated during the artistic movement, discussing Manet’s “Olympia.” One of the art projects that we would like to introduce is one in which students will be encouraged to use their imagination. For this project, we will provide watercolor supplies and begin the project by painting a blank canvas with abstract shapes. Following this, students will take a pen and focus on drawing an image of what they see in the “blob”. We hope to encourage students to visualize images through the abstract watercolor and apply their imagination in creating their own drawings. We will end this project with a show and tell around the class to show how everyone's imaginations are different and how we all see the world through different perspectives. This show and tell will be concluded with a supportive round of critique where we will evaluate and admire the works of other students.
