Monet – Wild Poppies

First Art group of the half term brought the start of a new artist study.  This time, Claude Monet.

To tie in with last week’s trips and remembrance day we started with Wild Poppies.


The picture study element had been taking too long as a group so I got Sam to do it beforehand.  This time from memory.



This week we opened group with looking at some of Monet’s paintings and a quick introduction to the idea of Impressionism.  Followed up by reading the picture book The Magical Garden of Claude Monet


The actual art this week was a simple copy the picture job.  We started off with watercolour pencils (purely because I’d managed to confuse people with what they needed to bring) and ended up reverting back to the plan of oil pastels as pencils were taking too long.
