2nd Graders studied Monet’s paintings and discovered that Monet loved to paint water and was intrigued with the ever changing reflections in the water. Click on Monet’s bridge to hear see another of Monet’s waterlily paintings at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. When you get to the museum, scroll down on the right until you find the Monet, then hit the play button to hear Monet’s gardener, its way cool! Look at our reflections. We created a landscape with a horizon line, mixed colors to make a moody autumn sky, and used our sketching practice to apply what we noticed about branches to paint trees. We borrowed Monet’s dabbing painting style to make glorious fall leaves, the whole time folding and printing our painting to make a reflections in the water.
