“The painter doesn’t try to reproduce the scene before him… he simplifies and eliminates until he knows exactly what stirred him, sets this down in color and line as simply and as powerfully as possible and so translates his impression into an aesthetic emotion”

-David Milne

Canadian artist, David Milne inspired our fall foliage creations. Milne had a distinct style and way of capturing the Canadian landscape throughout his long career.

Students used a tape resist to create their trees in the middle of a background of brightly coloured leaves. The trees were painted with brown and black to give texture and depth to the bark. We had a very colourful classroom!
