The Yellow Cow by Fans Marc 1911
This is a great lesson to introduce expressionism to Yr3. I just showed them one painting and we talked about it, what colours were used and what was the cow doing etc. The pupils then were given watercolours and they painted their own version.
When the painting was dry they were able to add more detail with pens, colour pencils and chalks.
I think by just looking at one picture this was a great introduction into expressionism. To end the 2 lesson project pupils looked into colour gel sheets and talked about how colour made them feel.
