Students chose images from the impressionist books I had on hand in the class. We Got out some water colour paper and prepared small minimal palettes of tempera (with the intent of developing these in steps and layers so as not to produce muddy results). We then used only the dabbing actions of our fingers to make our own versions of these famous paintings. In a few cases we also used some masking tape to protect zones and give a greater sense of a more solid shape (as in the orange houses for example). This was successful beyond any expectation and the students loved it as well. They were competed over several days.
