Inspiration from Ivan's Art

We got inspired by the real gorilla named Ivan while we were reading The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. Ivan does paint in real life, but it is abstract. Abstract painting is when you paint something, but it is not something specific. When you abstract paint it shows people's emotions or feelings or how they have lived in their life.

We got paint and did some Ivan inspired art [abstract]. We discussed and analyzed some famous abstract artists. We got a piece of thick paper called card-stock and finger painted with tempura paint just like Ivan does in the book. We painted abstract art. Here is a digital art gallery of our art. We hope you like it. ~CC and MH
