Emily Carr Landscapes

“Trees love to toss and sway; they make such happy noises.”

Emily Carr

Emily Carr was our artist today and we used her painting, “Blue Sky, 1932” as our inspiration piece. We learned about this famous Canadian‘s life, work and influences.

She is known as the first artist to attempt to capture the spirit of Canada in a modern style.

We learned about the term ‘mixed media’ and used acrylic paints and chalk pastel to create our paintings. Highlights and shadows helped to complete our forest scenes.
