This quarter we are learning how to compose complete scenes, with nature, houses, people and animals. The artist we are featuring this quarter is André Derain. He is known for his Fauvist style, utilizing bright colors and simple contours to depict its subject matters. We will use acrylic, pastels, and water soluble pastels to achieve the fauvist painting style. Students will also learn to draw abstract people, animals, boats, cars and buildings.
