My October session art students looked at the work of Celestino Piatti. For this group, I gave only the primary colors and black and white. We talked about adding designs and patterns in the way Piatti did in his graphic owls. This was the first opportunity for some to mix paint and it was fun for them to come up with their own color palettes for their owls.


  1. Beautiful artwork from your students.
    I love the colors and textures of the owls.

  2. Mary,
    In the spirit of Mr. Piatti, your student's work is bella, bella, belissima!


  3. Molte grazie to you both! :)
