Marc Chagall

Today we talked about Marc Chagall. Chagall was born in 1885 in Russia. He came from a poor Jewish family and he bounced around art schools until he was inspired to go to Paris by one of his teachers. There he learned about Cubism and Fauvism. From his experiences he developed a very surreal and fantastical look. The kids were encouraged to draw from their own dreams to inspire their works. We used pastels help enhance the dreamy imagery.
