Rainy Day

One rainy day, we looked at how artists have recorded similar weather...

Paris: A Rainy Day by Impressionist artist Gustave Caillebotte (oil on canvas, 1877)

Ohashi Bridge in a Sudden Downpour by Hiroshige (Japanese woodblock print, 1857)

Students cut out and glued colorful umbrellas to gloomy gray paper, then used oil pastels to add figures and a background. The rain was lightly brushed on with India ink.
