One day I had two new and unexpected students dropped magically into my Advanced Art class. On such short notice I needed something quick to get them started on. I saw this lesson at Art. Paper. Scissors. Glue! and I absolutely love the results! This is a great project to start the year off with or if you need something in a pinch.
A couple weeks ago I shared with all of you a great book full of Kindergarten Art Lessons, A Work of Heart (Click Here for the original post). Well, the author, Janet Louise Conlin, somehow found my post about her book and left me a nice little comment on my blog. How cool!! Blogging really does connects people that otherwise would never have met!

2nd Grader's created landscape paintings based on artist Grant Wood.
Start with the horizon line.
Use a Yellow oil pastel to draw the sun.
Use a White oil pastel to draw clouds.
Use Green, orange, brown and yellow watercolors to paint the fields.
Paint the sky blue and watch the clouds appear like magic.

Pre-K's painted Monet's Bridge!
Japanese Bridge and Water Lilies image
Bridge cut out of blue paper (or template for students to do themselves)
Monet had this Japanese bridge built in his garden in Giverny, France. This is where Monet painted nature "on the spot" instead of inside a studio, as most artists did at that time.
Before class, place a nickel size dollop of blue and white paint on palette paper for each student.
Trace the bridge template on dark blue construction paper, one for each child. In class, have each child cut out their bridge, or save time by cutting out the bridges beforehand. Since I was doing this with Pre-K students that is exactly what I did!
2. Have students paint with their paintbrush a blue line to divide the paper in half.
3. Students paint bottom half of paper with blue paint, using Monet's technique of short brushstrokes and dabbling.
4. Have students mix white paint into their blue to create waves in the water.
5. Give students a dollop of yellow paint to add lily pads in the water.
6. When lily pads are done, students use sponges to mix blue and yellow paint into green.
7. Use sponges to paint the remaining half of the paper green for trees.
8. Pass out a blue bridge to each student. Have them stick their bridge onto the center of their paper. The wet paint is enough to make the bridge stick without using glue!
