October,
Career- Painter
Artist Inspiration: Childe Hassam

Fourth grade study of pattern, texture and color lead into our fall field trip to the Florence Griswold Museum.  Students studied American Impressionists and painting a landscape. Lessons in elements of a landscape and how to create depth allowed students to explore painting en plein air while at the museum. Connections to Connecticut history and the place our state played in developing the American Impressionist movement fit into both the art and social studies curriculum.
