We are studying American History this year, so I researched and found an art book about Great American Artists. The book features a brief description of an artist and their particular art specialty. Today we learned about John Singleton Copley who was a painter who specialized in portraits and narrative paintings. The assignment for the day was to draw a narrative drama. Ian and Lia's drawing reflect our talks about the explorers and the native Americans.
Ian copied the Indian from a painting he found on the computer and the rest is his own creation
Lia's picture features a fight between an Indian and a Spanish explorer
