Art Class

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
