Art: Boscoe Holder
We are looking at the landscape paintings of Boscoe Holder, who was famous for his work inspired by Trinidad and Tobago. After learning about his life, we practised techniques he employed such as stippling and hatching, in order to fill in spaces in his paintings. We had fun and learned a little something by the end about being neat and tidy when painting! Our next art lesson will take us to the beach where we will begin to create our own paintings in the style of Boscoe Holder.
