5th Grade Impressionist Flowers

Artwork by Nate F.
Fifth graders are learning about Claude Monet and the famous Impressionists.  On day one, after studying some of Monet's most important works, they use tempura block paints to loosely "dab" a variety of flower blossoms and quickly add some stems.  On the second day of the project, they add a little more detail to their flowers with fine ink pens and then add a darker color value to their blossoms and stems to simulate shadowed areas.  The students seem very happy about how easily this "impressionistic" style gets their subject across.
