Mixed Media Around The World: France

In this term, my students and I are “travelling” around the world and learning about artist I picked for their inspiration. While visiting France, we ate delicious baguettes with butter and learned about mosaic artist Nikki De Saint Phalle and whimsical illustrator Sophie Fatus.

When choosing the artists that will be introduced, I try to imagine the impact and inspiration these artist will make in my students. The children develop endless possibilities and interpretations after they are exposed to unique artists’ artworks. I witness with pride and joy as my students’ artworks come to life!
