Mrs. McIntosh from Glenpool OK is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Renoir, Monet, Degas, Oh My!

My students need a color wheel to study color theory and brushes, utility paper, and transfer paper to create paintings inspired by French Impressionists.

My Students

My budding artists are middle schoolers bursting with energy. These students range from gifted to special needs children, and I want to help them focus their energy in positive, creative ways. Whether students already feel confident in their abilities or are afraid to begin because they might make a mistake, I urge them to move beyond their comfort zones to enjoy new art concepts. My joy comes when they begin to accept that "mistakes" are really "opportunities" to try something different.

My Project

One of the first questions I hear each year is, "When do we get to paint?" I give the students a dose of art history before we begin each activity. For this project, we will use the color wheel to study color theory and French Impressionists.

Students will work in groups, choose an Impressionist artist for inspiration, and create murals in the style of their chosen artist.

They will use transfer paper to trace their designs to the kraft paper and paint. Students will welcome seeing new brushes to replace our old, damaged ones that fall apart and lose bristles when we try to paint.
