The artist Jared French made this painting, State Park, thinking about visits he made to the beach with his wife Margaret, and his artist friend Paul Cadmus. They would take pictures of themselves at the beach in different poses—sitting or standing in different ways. The artist would then use these “poses” from the photographs in his paintings.
Have you ever posed for a picture before?
Choose a pose or a face you might make for a picture and see how long you can hold it. Now freeze! Hold it…..hooold it…..you can do it…..
Whew! Good job! Pretty as a picture!
