Painting Like Wild Beasts

We are learning to paint like the Fauves! Fauvism is french for "the wild beast". These artists were known for their bold bright, high chroma paintings that used impulsive and sketchy brush strokes.  We have been practicing color mixing skills and learning new painting techniques as well as planning out our sketches for our final paintings. Students have reviewed what foreground, middle-ground, and background mean. By mixing the three primary colors red, yellow, and blue students learned to mix secondary colors orange, green, and violet. We also learned how to mix tints and shades. The final paintings will be the pieces that will be on display during Parent Teacher Conferences from 1-4pm on November 15th.
