Impressionism/Expressionism

Aah, the splotch! The child was missing the splotch, Marie-Anne came and repaired that.

Here are our bigger boys attempting to reproduce a bunch of flowers, a subject whose fresh and natural fragrance inspires their young souls:


Over in the Smalls corner we can clearly see the influence of abstract impressionism. And it seems imperative that every square inch of the drawing sheet is covered with as many layers of different coloured paint as feasibly possible. In the end, quite structured compositions are produced; a lot of paint on the sheet and almost no paint on the child himself.
Marie-Anne, a former educator of young children in trouble with the law, is used to handling much tougher cookies than Tara's budding artists.
