Claude Monet’s Frogs

First grade artists have been learning about the Impressionist work of Claude Monet.  As they examined Monet’s Japanese Bridge painting, they all wondered….where are the frogs on the lily pads?!

So…we created lily pads, blending our colors so it looked like the sun was shining on them, just like Monet might do.  They added little tissue paper flowers, and finished with these too-cute-for-words frogs.
