Second Grade: Claude Monet's Sunset Reflection

Students studied Monet's love for art and science.  Monet was fascinated by the way light affected the way things looked.  He wanted to capture this with his artwork.  Students created a sunset and a reflection by drawing a city scape first, then reflecting it in the water.  Next sponge painting the sky and reflection and lastly painting in their dark cities and the water reflection.  This is still a work in progress.  We will be adding ripple lines in the water to show movement and add detail.
