Impressionism: Making Marks Part 1 (Eye Spy)

Go on a mark-making eye-spy hunt! Give your students copies of this PDF worksheet, which shows many (but not all!) of the different marks that Impressionists used. Have them try to replicate the marks with pencil, and then search through the galleries to see if they can find those marks in the work. Have them write that piece’s artist and title underneath the mark.
