To kick start this, I showed the kids a copy of Claude Monet's Bridge Over Water Lilies painting.
After our conversation, we did a project I found from The Crafty Classroom.
Using masking tape, you make a bridge shape on the paper, then using your finger, you dab on paint to create your picture. We talked about which colors should be on the top for the trees and which colors should be in the water. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten my new shipment of paint in yet, so I only had blue, red, green, and white for the students to use. After the paint dries, you carefully rip off the tape to reveal a white bridge.
|Here is my sample. I did it quickly and didn't blend too well. That's ok, though, it's still cool!|
If you have a great student art project to share, I'd love for you to link up! Old and new posts are ok! Just grab the button below, add it to your post, and link away!
