Painter’s Pallet at Norma Rose Point School

Check out our ‘Painter’s Pallet’ course that Pear Tree is running at Norma Rose Point School (near UBC). This project was based on Rene Magritte’s ‘Son of Man’ picture (shown below).

The students painted the sky background with sponge painting technique. They then painted the apples and learned about “value”. After, we read Anthony Browne’s “Voices in the Park” (1998) picture book, which has many references to Rene Magritte’s style. The highlight of course was dressing up like the subject in the painting, with Magritte’s signature bowler hat!

Next week, we’ll post the final final pictures, where the students’ faces are hidden by their apples!
