Art Masters Legacy is a program that exposes the students to Art History and many different mediums. This year the program will start by introducing 3 artists (Van Gogh, Homer, Picasso) --one at a time. They learn about the genre, the artist’s style and see many pieces done by the artist, in a recording presented by an Art Masters' teacher.
After they learn about the artist, the art instructor will lead the art activity in a recording. Each studied artist will be available through the end of the month and new recordings will be posted on the first of the month. Here is a list of this year's artists:
(June 7, 1848 – May 8, 1903) Paul Gauguin was a French Post-Impressionist artist. His work was influential on the French avant-garde and many modern artists, such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
(April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) Leonardo DaVinci was an Italian polymath of the High Renaissance. Leonardo is widely regarded to have been a genius who epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal, and his collective works compose a contribution to later generations of artists matched only by that of his younger contemporary, Michelangelo.
(September 7, 1917 – June 9, 2000) Jacob Lawrence was an American painter known for his portrayal of African-American historical subjects and contemporary life. He brought the African-American experience to life using blacks and browns juxtaposed with vivid colors. He also taught and spent 16 years as a professor at the University of Washington.
(July 22, 1898 – November 11, 1976) Alexander Calder was an American sculptor known both for his innovative mobiles (kinetic sculptures powered by motors or air currents) that embrace chance in their aesthetic, his static "stabiles", and his monumental public sculptures.
