Tuesday July 15th: Louise Nevelson
Wednesday July 16th: Vincent Van Gogh
Thursday July 17th: Georgia O'Keeffe
Louise Nevelson was an American sculptor known for her monumental, monochromatic, wooden wall pieces
and outdoor sculptures. Nevelson used found and discarded objects to create puzzle like sculptures. Each student will create a piece of a Nevelson inspired wall sculpture using recycled materials.
Join us in studying the Impressionistic style of Van Gogh and then work together to make a cut-up painting to display where each student is responsible for one part of a famous Van Gogh painting.
O’Keeffe and her famous photographer husband, Alfred Stiegltiz vacationed for many years on Lake George, NY where his family had a summer cottage. At Lake George O’Keeffe painted some of her earliest abstract landscapes. We will study O’Keeffe and paint our own close up views of flowers with circle and sphere forms. We shall end the day by decorating mosaic flower pots and planting sunflower seeds.
