Art historians beware- blobby is an official descriptor
'More blobby' becomes a new dictionary definition. When asked which impressionist paintings were more likely to be dated later as opposed to earlier, one of our students thought about it for a bit, made his pitch and gave his succinct reasons why. Part of our afternoon included looking at work by some of the Impressionists close up and further away as we read the story of Katie and the Impressionists. A piece of research on the Ancient Greeks, led to the making of 'knuckle bones' in clay - an early form of the game we know now as 'jacks'. These will dry over the weekend, ready to be painted and played with next week. Maybe we can use the Ancient Greek way of voting to lobby for our new art history definition!
