We are back with another “Fine art” for kids, art project. This is our 4th artist/project. You can check out our previous projects if you would like.
My favorite part about all of these projects has been the broad range of skill levels that they work with. Most of these projects work great if a kid is 2, or if they are 12
This week we worked on one of my all time favorite artists.
If you would like to study Mr. Monet you can check out this biography on him by Making Art Fun.
Or you can see if your library has a copy of The Magical Garden of Claude Monet
Good quality painters tape
First I took the tape and marked of a bridge. I would highly recommend using a thinner, good quality painters tape. I used some of the cheaper kind and it wanted to peel off the paper when I took it off.
With the tape in place I let her go crazy painting, blending and layering the colors.
*Note I used a place mat underneath to save me from scrubbing the counter top.
Studying and replicating the great Impressionist was a lot of fun. It was nice to feel lie this project had absolutely no rules to it and she was totally free to just paint.
If you give this project a try be sure and let us know how it goes!
