Watercolor Waterlilies

One of my favorite, no-fail lessons is the watercolor waterlilies based on Claude Monet's very popular series.
The students love to paint, but also think it's pretty fascinating how large some of the paintings are.... they can take up an entire ROOM!
While we can't work on that large of a scale, my Kindergarteners and First Graders always enjoy painting their very own waterlilies inspired by Monet.

If your child want to learn more about Claude Monet, check out these books:
Linnea in Monet's Garden, by Christine Bjork and Lena Anderson
