Eyeful of Eiffels


This project is loosely based on Robert Delaunay's Eiffel Tower painting from 1924 and these oil pastel inspirations I saw on Artsonia. And of course I was so smitten by the film "Midnight in Paris", I wanted to do something Parisian. These were done on large blue construction paper with oil pastel line work and chalk pastel colors. We took the basic cropped shape of the Eiffel Tower and added our own shapes and designs. If I had extra time, glue lines would add an extra boldness. Artwork by 7-9 year olds.
