First graders learned about the artist Claude Monet and created a seascape in an impressionistic style. We used loose overlapping brushstrokes to imitate Monet's style. Monet was an artist who loved to paint outside and he especially liked water scenes!
Learning Goals: The learner will...
- talk about Monet's artwork
- paint in the style of Monet
- use warm colors in the sky and cool colors in the water
- use size to show space (the boats are smaller in the distance and larger closeup)
