2nd and 3rd graders à la découverte de Jean-François Millet et du réalisme

Students are learning about realism and Jean-François Millet 's work.

We took and printed a picture of each student doing a realistic task in the class.
(getting the mail, carrying the sport equipment, watering the plants, erasing the board, writing. .)


Students had to study their own picture and 
really focus on the details like the colors, the position of their body.


                     Then, students realized a painting, trying to figure out how to come up with the same colors and detail.
