Emily Carr Forest Paintings

During our week learning about Canadian (and local!) artist Emily Carr, my students created these acrylic paintings inspired by Carr's many forest artworks. For their compositions we drew inspiration from Carr's Blue Sky.  We discussed Carr's love of nature and the Canadian landscape, as well as her increasing use of unnatural colours inspired by the Fauves.  A number of the kids really took to incorporating unusual colours into their paintings, creating fantastical looking landscapes.

Our Inspiration: Emily Carr's Blue Sky, 1932

 This student was especially inspired by Emily Carr's love of animals and her large amount of pets, from several dogs to her monkey Woo.
