We painted our clay animals, which had passed through the firing process in the meantime. In the second part of the class we introduced a soft pastel technique.
We were looking at the artworks of impressionists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who all used this technique extensively. The children could choose to draw a vase with flowers or a portrait. We will continue working with soft pastel in our future classes.
