1st gr.- Summer Stories

What did you do over summer break? Did you take a trip? Visit family? Play with friends? Artists make artwork showing how they spend their time. The artist, Mary Cassatt, is known for painting families, especially parents with their children. What did this family do for their summer?

Who is shown in this artwork? Are they family? Where are they? What are they doing? What is the weather? What clues does Mary give you?


You will draw an artwork telling a story of something you did with your family this summer. Make sure to draw yourself and your family in your artwork. Show their bodies, faces, and clothes, don’t draw stick people!
