Fifth Grade Paints In The Style of Edward Hopper

Fifth graders learned about artist Edward Hopper and viewed a picture of his painting, "The Long Leg" on the Activboard. We discussed how his paintings usually depict a calm, serene environment and how his style of Art is Realistic. We also discussed how to make highlights and shadows in the painting by adding more water for lighter areas like where the sunlight would be hitting something and less water/more paint in areas where there should be shadows. The students then did an amazing job on their versions of "The Long Leg."
