To go along with their study in class, Liberty Christian’s Middle and Upper School art students recently visited the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth for a docent-guided tour of the “Faces of Impressionism – Portraits from Musée d’Orsay.”
Many of the students have been assigned an impressionist artist to study for the year and have created a 3-D clay piece using their artist’s style, colors, and subject matter.
“By emulating a master artist, students will learn by doing, which I believe is the strongest form of learning,” said art teacher Shara Wright.
Students will each give a presentation at the end of the year on their artist.
A collage of 8th Grade Art I students includes artwork by the following: Top Left – a copy of an Edgar Degas ballerina painting by student Alex Hurd; Top Right – a copy of a Paul Cezanne painting by student Kyle Williamson; Bottom Left – a copy of a Vincent Van Gogh by student Andy Liu; Bottom Right – a photo of a 3-D sculpture created by all of the Art I students inspired by their assigned artist.
