Impasto Painting Coop

This past week we went to an Impasto painting coop. Think Vincent Van Gogh. It is painting with thick paint using instruments other than brushes.

Since we had a doctor visit in the morning not too far from the coop we brought our lunch and stopped at the park before the coop. No sense in driving all the way home for lunch and back!

At the coop we first learned about Impressionists and we looked at lots of examples. Then the girls loaded their plates with paint and added corn starch to the paint to thicken it. They picked which instruments they wanted to paint with and headed outside to create their masterpieces.

The finished products!

We love our homeschool group coops!
