In this lesson, we will study beautiful horses—a popular subject in art. So far in this series, we’ve studied the elements of art: line, shape and texture. We will introduce the fourth element of art in this lesson: color. First, we’ll look at paintings by expressionist master artist Franz Marc, and learn how he interpreted horses and colors in nature. Then we’ll use the elements of art, line, shape and color to create our own pictures. In Project 1, we’ll draw and paint a color wheel horse. In Project 2, we’ll continue using color to draw and color a rainbow horse with an expressionist style landscape.
