Maud Lewis-Inspired Paintings
This week we have been learning about the life and work of Canadian artist Maud Lewis. We learned about how she had very bad arthritis which made it difficult for her to paint, and about how she was very poor. She lived in a tiny house in Nova Scotia but painted everything in it with pictures of flowers and nature to make it beautiful. We looked at her lighthouse paintings in particular to inspire our own mixed-media pictures. Have a look at how we made them!
