The 5th grade students learned about the life and artwork of Claude Monet through a power point. Students learned that Impressionist painters were more focused on how the light affected their piece of art. Monet would paint the same subject matter over and over but at different times during the day and different times of the year. Students were able to view Monet’s Haystack series and discuss what season or time of day they thought the painting was done. Students were able to create lays of paint using different techniques and Analogous colors to create an Impressionist piece of art like Claude Monet.
