5 - Your Art Lesson this week can be found HERE :
This is a fantastic lesson for drawing a realistic eye! Make sure you are pausing the video when you need to, as the artist is moving fairly quickly. Use a light hand (my favourite expression, right?) Watch for how she curves her lines...in fact, the only time straight lines are used is in the shading of the iris (the coloured part of the eye). If you really like your finished product, be sure to e-mail Mrs. Throne a picture!
6 - Music:
Composers have been influenced by works of visual art, and visual artists by music, for a very long time. For example, Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky composed a series of piano pieces inspired by a visit to an art exhibition, called “Pictures at an Exhibition.” Another example is Vincent Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” inspired Don McLean’s song “Vincent.”
Listen to a piece of instrumental music. Draw a picture of what you think it’s about, or how it makes you feel.
Also - for those of you who have guitars, ukuleles or recorders at home, here are some links to beginner lessons: GUITAR, UKULELE, RECORDER
Have a great week of learning and be well!
