I love Impressionism Monet is one of my favorite artist (I named my dog Monet Picasso).
Monet Picasso – December 2007
I watched the In the Zone Episode on June 20 and decided I needed to incorporate Impressionism into a children’s project for my show In the Paint Box. I started doing some research and found a book: 13 Paintings Children Should Know and Monet’s Waterlilies is one of the thirteen.
I decided I wanted to search for an actual project, I turned to one of my favorite magazines Arts and Activities I found on-line Issues Jan 2010 had an amazing article for Kindergarten age students “I ~ Impressions of Impressionism”.
I decided to change mine up a little we used blue and green construction paper instead of white paper. I thought the blue would help with the illusion of water and conserve paint.
Materials Needed: Blue and Green Construction Paper Light Blue (I used Aqua Acrylic) and White Paint Paint Brush Styrofoam Plate (to put paint on) Non-Toxic Oil Pastels Scissors Glue Stick Waterlily Template or you can free hand it
