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:
|Solomon (Left) and Monica's (Right) Pop Art Self-Portraits|
The impressionist landscapes were done in the style of Monet, following a finger-painting idea from The Crafty Classroom:
|Solomon (Left) and Monica's (Right) Water Lily Ponds|
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.
Next week's project: The Romans.
