Monet's Waterlilies by grades 5+6

Fifth and sixth grade artists looked at Monet's waterlily paintings and learned about impressionism.  They were amazed that some of Monet's waterlily paintings are the size of an entire wall!

We started by painting the water background on our pictures, exploring color mixing and different types of brushstrokes.

Next, then painted lily pads and waterlily flowers and finally added details with oil pastels.
