This week we revisited our Famous Artist studies,
and added Monet to our list!
If you’re new to our blog we’ve been using The World’s Greatest Artist series to
take a mini-survey of various artists and their work.
It’s a pretty low-key approach.
We read the book. Look at the art.
Then we make our own.
The real learning occurs over the following weeks/months/years
in which I bring up things like;
“Hey Bubba, Look at those water lilies, they look just like that artist….” or
“Hey Sissy, check out that billboard! They are using that cool Pop-Art style…..”
And the conversations and natural learning run wild from there.
You just can’t keep them from telling you what they remember.
way better then a paper test if you ask me ;)
Well, this week we broke out the masking tape

And we broke out the paint.
We tried our best to be patient:
And we were rewarded with these beautiful representations of
Monet’s Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies
These are keepers for sure!
