Monet's Waterlillies

Students began this lesson by watching the DVD Getting to Know the Worlds Greatest Artists- Monet. The first step was to create a watercolor resist painting of a pond. We used crayons to create swirly lines that give a sense of movement. These were then painted over with a blue/green watercolor. We then painted some green lily pads and cut them out. The lily pads were glued onto the paper and tissue paper was added for flowers. This project is a great because it gives the students a chance to scribble and be messy but in a controlled way.
