Peter Loose is a folk artist here in Georgia. He was not always an artist. He once worked at a nature center ... come to think of it ... he may still, because he has a passion and love for nature. None-the-less, he is inspired by animals. Second graders surely noticed this as they viewed his paintings.
I happened to notice how Peter Looses' art had a lot in common with traditional Aboriginal art. So, we compared and contrasted these two distinct artists.
What do you you notice?
We "pair shared" with each other after we thought we were finished. I asked that each pair share one thing they really liked about each other's art and offer one suggestion on how to make it even better. The results were terrific. They had such wonderful ideas.
