Students will be introduced to the Impressionist movement. A brief overview and examples will be given as to the historical context and meaning behind works from this era.
Students will listen to music and will need to draw/colour how that piece of music makes them feel. Each piece will be collated onto the tables 1-5 to establish any patterns that occurred through listening to the same music. Are there similarities?
Using these practices as guide students will then create an A4 Painting using acrylic paint, which reflects a particular mood. Students may use shapes/patterns which are reflective of that mood.
Students will: Explore different styles and forms of artworks -Attempt to interpret the message/meaning of viewed artworks -Inquire into the purpose of artworks -Experiment with colour to represent a feeling or mood -Be able to identify the characteristics of an Impressionist painting
