The program recording will also be available to access for one week for booked participants.
Camille Pissarro was the oldest of the Impressionist group and among its most daring innovators. He forged many supportive relationships with other artists, teaching them as a mentor and learning from them as a mentee regardless of their age, experience or status. Pissarro also experimented with a technique known as Pointillism, which involves applying small distinct dots of colour to eventually form an image. This week, explore Pissarro’s unique style through work Spring pasture, 1889.
- Identify and describe Camille Pissarro’s artistic techniques.
- Examine the ways in which artists express their ideas, feelings and beliefs in artworks.
- Discuss how artworks are made and how the choice of materials and techniques can influence their meaning.
