Monet Inspired Fall Trees
In Art class, 5th graders learned about the artist Claude Monet. Students looked at a power point about him and spent some time studying his paintings and learning about how he used dabs of color without smoothing the paint to fill areas in his paintings. This style of painting is called Impressionism. Students made art like Claude Monet by dabbing colors of paint in this autumn tree painting. They mixed their own secondary colors (orange, green and purple) using the primary colors (red, yellow and blue). For the finishing touch students created a symmetrical leaf print frame.
