SEASCAPE ART APPRECIATION TOUR AND GUIDED DRAWING EXPERIENCE
Spark Your Imagination
Students interact with museum docents in this guided activity.
Looking at one of the museum’s most treasured masterpiece oil paintings, students are introduced to elements of design and basic artistry techniques (such as, shape, line, texture, horizon line, perspective). Then they explore several other masterpiece paintings, identifying those same artistic elements, with the guidance of experienced docents.
Finally, students meet an artist who helps them to imagine that they are an artist in the field. Students are guided to make their own sketch of a seascape scene using the techniques learned.
