I know, not everyone has a museum at their disposal for kids’ art viewing activities. With that in mind, I’ve created my first printable. It’s got the art work, some fun facts and 10 questions that ask your child. Because we’re Mini Monets, I chose one of my favorite artworks by …. Monet!
Here it is:
I was lucky enough to have one of Monet’s Water Lilies at the museum where I taught. From toddlers to teens (yes, I really did take a class of toddlers into the museum’s art galleries) I’ve used this artwork to teach children of different ages and skill levels.
When your child is done with the art-viewing, try out some Monet themed art-making.
Instead of using paint (like Monet did), use modeling clay. Your child can finger paint her own water lilies. This art activity lets your little artist create a textured look and helps her to better understand the noticeable brush strokes that she’ll see when she looks at the real deal.
Try cupcakes as a canvas. Why not combine art with sweet treats? Make your own Monet in frosting.
Did you enjoy the printable? So, this is my first printable that I’m offering. I’d love to read your feedback. Was it useful? Did your child enjoy it? Is there something else that you would like to see? Feel free to respond in the comments section.
