Week 2: Impressionism · June 8-12
Artists during the Impressionist period painted their pictures so that people who saw them would feel the light, color and movement of natural scenes. Bright colors, sunlight and cool shadows, painted with rapid, loose brush strokes, were the ingredients of the Impressionistic artists. They liked to paint scenes from nature and often painted “en plein air,” or outside.
This week, campers will discover their impressions of nature or a scene and capture a moment in time. Artists: Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro, Edgar Degas, Paul Cezanne, Mary Cassatt, August Rodin.
