Program Description
In this highly interactive 30 minute lesson students use their eyes to spy apples or other fruit in paintings by Renoir, Picasso, and Matisse, then discover how these celebrated artists used color to convey the apple's appearance. Looking at a real apple under different lighting conditions helps students see how light affects form.
Program Format
1. Open with introduction about the museum, and explanation of what they will see — paintings with apples and/or fruit.
2. View The Apple Seller by Renoir, and discuss the shadows and reflections.
3. View Interior with an Etruscan Vase by Matisse, and students look for different fruits.
4. Sing a song about apples (“The Little Appleseed”.)
5. View Still Life with Biscuits by Picasso, and students identify elements in the painting.
6. Students review the three artists’ works, and ask remaining questions.
Students will understand how light affects form, and how artists capture shadows and reflections in their paintings.
Students will be able to describe the concept of past and present as it relates to visual art.
Students will be able to observe visual clues or details in artworks or artifacts and determine if the work/object is old or new.
Students will be able to use active listening strategies to identify the main idea and to gain information from oral presentations.
