              Second grade students in Mr. Patterson's art class worked on French Impressionism.  Impressionist artists drew mostly about outdoor subjects. They used high-key colors and a variety of brushstrokes.  Students used oil pastels  and watercolors on their pictures.  They mixed  red, yellow, blue and white to get all other colors on their pictures. Their picture was modeled after Vincent Van Gogh's "Starry Night".
