After reading several books and watching a few videos about him and his art, I decided today was a good hands-on day. Ben and I tend to enjoy crafty things in our free time, but I don't schedule enough of this artistic time into the school day.
Today was an exception. We followed an art project from pp. 50-51 of The Usborne Art Treasury.
We all had so much fun. I just love projects with tissue paper! We also used Modge Podge Sparkle to give it a shimmery effect Sure, Monet didn't create art with tissue paper and glue, but that's okay. :)
PS. Thanks to http://satorismiles.com/ for blogging about this project. It inspired us!
