One Lake, many views
Our Municipal park at the Mobile Museum of art has many areas suitable for Plein Air painting. These views were taken from the balcony outside the main hall of the museum. Our class is from 8-10 and we walked around from the Education Department to the balcony on the outside of the building. Spliting our picture into quarters gave the children many chances at quick sketches and rapid paintings. I emphasize to them that these are not finished works of art, but a platform from which to build better paintings. Painting this week has been fun and interesting, seeing the world through their eyes and brushes. Thanks to my students, Raven , Jared, Mark, and Jamie for a great week!
