Project 88: Painting

As it was Monica's birthday this week, she got to pick the project: Painting.

After watching some videos on different types and styles of painting, we all agreed on some projects they could do:

  • Pop Art Self-Portrait
  • Impressionist Landscape
  • Abstract Expressionist
The pop art portraits were done in the style of Roy Lichtenstein, following an idea from the blog Pink Stripey Socks:

The impressionist landscapes were done in the style of Monet, following a finger-painting idea from The Crafty Classroom:

Finally they expressed themselves with some abstract expressionism:

We also tried painting on a different medium with a trip to Crafty Monkey in St. Neots for some pottery painting:

Everyone enjoyed it, and the blog will be updated once the unicorn/tank/pirate have been glazed, fired, and collected.
