Welcome to Dream, Draw Create!
This blog features art projects for children. These projects have been used in my classes. My lessons allow children to learn about all the elements and principles of art while striving to introduce them to many genres of art.

Reflecting on Monet, Grades 1 & 2

This was a painting lesson that I did with my second and third grade classes.  
It's a lesson I love to do every year.  Sometimes the grade level varies as was the case this year with my younger students.
 I gave them a palette of shades of blue paint and white and let them blend directly on their paper. We talked about how the brush strokes should convey a somewhat still feeling in the painting.
I love their application of paint and the way they portrayed the bridge with its highlights and shadows.  We incorporated some cut paper water lily pads along with some brightly colored tissue paper.  The students took two forty  minute class sessions to complete their work.  Although not as involved as my older students work I was happy with the impressionistic feeling of their work.
