Monet’s Japanese Bridge

3rd and 4th grade continued to explore art through history this week. They learned about Impressionism, specifically the painting style of Monet. Students were told that the Impressionists received their name as they were concerned with depicting the visual impression of the moment, especially in terms of the shifting effect of light and color. Students were shown examples of Monet’s work. They paid attention to the blurred images, the visibility of the artist’s brush strokes and how the artist focused on light. They were guided through painting Monet’s Japanese Bridge. Each student was given their own palette of paints in order to mix the colors as they wished. They did a great job applying their paint with quick, light and fast brush strokes, mimicking the painting style of Monet. I love how their paintings turned out 🙂

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
