Monet WaterLily Pond

Monet Inspired WaterLily Pond by my Grade 1 and 2

  • Students learned about the artist Claude Monet
  • Students studied Monet’s “Waterlilies” and “The Waterlily Pond” artwork.
  • Students learned how to paint using Monet’s painting technique.
  • Students created their own version of Monet’s “Waterlily Pond” using painting, drawing and collage techniques

Monsters Love Colors

Grade 1 Monsters ❤️ Colors:
After reading the book we went over our primary and secondary colors.
Students then became monsters 🤭and scribbled all over their paper using two primary colored markers to make a secondary color.
They saw the magic ✨when they added water and painted over their scribbled paper. Once dried we used the secondary color oil pastels and applied “Lines”.
Then we made the two colored monsters that made the secondary color or “Magic” happen.
A great layered lesson to introduce colors and lines.
