1st Grade Claude Monet Frogs in Ponds

1st grade artists are learning about Impressionistic art created by Claude Monet. We watched a slide show and then used "blobs and smears" like Monet to paint our pond. Next we fead the book, "Felipe in Monet's Garden" and drew the frog using dark and light value oil pastels. Finally, we talked about the art element of form and created model magic clay flowers.  Aren't they adorable?
