Painting Like Monet

We had a wonderful day of art today. We looked at lots of paintings by Claude Monet. We noticed his paintings are very blurry and that he liked to paint things outside in nature. We wrote about what we could see in Monet's paintings during writing time.

Then we used cotton buds to paint a picture of a river scene with water and sky - Monet liked to paint water and sky, too. We aren't finished yet but here we are hard at work. Look at the concentration on our faces!

  1. I am smiling looking at those photos! And I never noticed James holding TWO green pencils when he was drawing his detailed picture for writing time. I think I was too busy taking the photo! Were you trying to blend colour just like Monet, James?
