Artistic Endeavor of the Week

Today, as part of Black History Month, we learned about Afro-Caribbean artist Bernard Hoyes and the Caribbean Revival style of art. Our work is inspired by Hoyes, but we followed the directions found (once again) on the fabulous site Art Projects for Kids. We discussed the use of color in Hoyes' work as well as the themes and motifs found in his artwork. This was a challenging project for my kids - it looks simple, but looks can be deceiving. Once we finished our pieces they really appreciated Hoyes' artwork even more!
