Monet (First Grade)

First Graders started the by learning about Claude Monet.  Monet is often called the father of Impressionism.  He focused on light and color and their effect on visual spaces.  We looked at several of Monet's Waterlilly paintings and did our best to create a project in his style.

On our first day studying Monet we painted with watercolor.   We worked wet on wet, meaning we
soaked our papers so that our colors would blend and blur together to gives us the look of an impressionist  painting.  On our second day working on this project we used oil pastels to add in our bridges and other details to make our Monet water gardens.
