A series of 12 famous works of impressionsts art drawn so that students add shading, color, and blending. These lessons incorporate art history with individual knowledge of each artist. The lessons are proven to please both students that have no interest in art as well as students that are very talented in drawing and use of color. Each lesson is designed for a 90 minute class or 12 classes. Students take each assignment and they have the choice of recreating the exact impressionists painting or they have the choice of recreating their own color scheme. The use of baby oil and a cotton swab for blending the color pencils applied allows for a painterly oil appearance. This makes the lesson less messy than using paint and it gives each student more choices of applying color via color pencils.
