Delaunay Inspired Eiffels

Oil pastel based on this lesson from last year

I bid my group of Mini Masters au revoir on this Good Friday. I've had a fun 5 weeks of introducing this group of 3rd graders to the works of Monet, Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso (and Contemporary Cubist, Sandra Silberzweig), Modigliani, Robert Delaunay, and Georgia O'Keefe. 
They were a fun and enthusiastic group, always eager and excited to dive into the next project. 


  1. Mary - I had forgotten about this Eiffel Tower lesson. I love the flowing lines of the composition, the close-up views as well as the subtle colors. This time I am pinning for the future!!

    1. Thanks Christie! I enjoyed this lesson too. I love seeing each childs' unique take on their designs. I may try it at some point using watercolor.

  2. Love the Georgia O'Keeffe's and the Eiffel Towers! I really like the interesting composition.

    1. Ruth! Back in the hood! Please keep in touch. I am following you at your "new" school now.


I appreciate your comments and feedback!
