This was an easy one day painting project that I did with 5th grade when I returned from maternity leave. We learned about Monet through a Power Point presentation that I had made. We discussed the painting style of Impressionism. I find that students get a kick out of painting like an Impressionism because it is such a loose style of painting. Each student needed to re-create the Lily Pond paintings. I showed them how to paint wet on wet with tempera paint and to do the color mixing right on the paper. Some worked really quick, so I had them do a second one and we turned those into a Lily Pond collage.
