Art Tuesday – Ocean Life

Welcome to Art Tuesday!

I’m so sorry for not posting a project the last couple of weeks. We’ve had an unusual schedule for few weeks and Tuesdays just slipped by before I realized I was supposed to post a project. Thankfully, things have settled down a bit and we’re back on track.

Today, we’ll study the painting on page 19 of the book Can You Hear It? by William Lach. Here are links to the pieces of art and music in case you weren’t able to purchase your book, yet.

Music

The Carnival of the Animals: The Aquarium by Camille Saint-Saens

 

Discussion

What are the main colors used in this piece of art. Did you notice the amount of detail the artist used? What creatures do you see? Is that what you imagine ocean life to look like?

What instruments do you hear? How does the music fit to this painting? Can you listen to the music, close your eyes and imagine the fish swimming in the ocean?
