General Painting – Term 2 2020 – Lesson 1

LESSON 1 – TREES (IN THE STYLE OF TOM THOMSON)

For this first ‘General Painting’ project, we will be creating highly expressive trees in the style of Canadian Artist, Tom Thomson (1877-1917).

Tom was born and painted from Canada and was an artist whose works consisted almost entirely of landscapes depicting trees, skies, lakes and rivers.

Let’s get started by watching Lesson 1 – Stage 1 video below.

It is ESSENTIAL that all videos are watched in full with sound on because Krystyna is giving many instructions including timelines and what is required of you step by step.
