My ALL TIME FAVORITE artist to teach is... PETER MAX! I love his painterly style... I am a painter myself, and just love his quick blendy brush strokes!
I have been doing this lesson for over a decade... not every year, not exactly the same way, but it never gets old. I start the motivation for this lesson with two short video's I found on You Tube.
Here they are...
Each video is about 5 minutes long. Once the kids watch these, they can't wait
to get brushes in their hands!!! Have fun friends!
