The backyard is often the inspiration for spring art lessons. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom and I had to have everyone paint them. This lesson is a great introduction to acrylic painting in an impressionist style suitable for all ages.
Students had to mix a wide range of values to create depth in their paintings from a limited selection of colors on their pallet. Day one, students completed a base coat with the deeper colors. Day two, students continue to paint and brighten up the canvas.
Paintings are 9x12 on canvas boards.
