Magritte last year in Grade 5 but I thought we would try another.
Here is our version of "The Large Family" 1963
and this is the original.
This is my favorite painting of Magritte and always leads to wonderful conversation regarding the symbolism.
- 2 sheets wc paper
- green painter's tape
- disk tempera in blue, yellow,orange,white and black
- white pastel or pencil crayon
- Dove Template 1, Dove Template 2 or create your own
- tacky glue
Take your wc papers and tape down to your art boards with the green painter's tape.
While the paint is still wet use a kleenex to lift off clouds.
Add some blue, orange and yellow. Leave the top white as well as the bottom.
Go over your sky colors with a black wash including the white at the top.
Let background dry.
Cut out your sketch.
See you soon.
