4 Red – Art Week

This week the artists we have looked at were Mary Cassatt and Kara Walker.  The children looked at how both artists used different types of media to create different effects.  Children then used these skills and techniques to create their own art work.  Below are some fantastic pictures of children’s portraits using oil pastels and silhouettes to identify social issues around the world.

Can you give me a fact each about Kara Walker and Mary Cassatt?

What was different about their work?

What have you enjoyed in art week?
