Art is not always about painting fancy elaborate scenes! In fact, the Expressionists were well-known for creating art about normal everyday things that happened. Learn to draw this pair of figures, a mother and child, as they partake in a good old-fashioned bath! Inspired by Expressionist artist Mary Cassatt’s The Child’s Bath (1893).
