MAC/Second Grade Impressionism

We’re starting spring early in MAC and Second grade art classes.  We watched an animated “Famous Artists” video about Claude Monet, and made our own paintings inspired by Monet’s Japanese bridges from his garden in France.  Students used sponges to create the soft, blurred edges characteristic of Impressionism, and oil pastels to define their bridges and water lilies.  Hope these end up on fridge near you to brighten these last dull days of winter!

I am St. Aloysius School's art teacher for grades K-8. It is a joy to bring art instruction to our students.
