Pacific Panorama


Local Artist Kaye Furlong was inspired by the grandeur of our ocean and the works of American Artist James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) who felt that lines were the most important element of art and painting.

Children will create a seascape, likely a familiar site for children in our community. They will learn about pen and ink shading and pastel enhancement. Children will learn about background, foreground, contour lines, panorama, perspective in this seascape piece.

“You shouldn't say it is not good. You should say, you do not like it; and then, you know, you're perfectly safe.”

James McNeill Whistler

Whistler's "Nocturne" series showed different views of the Thames River.

“An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.”
