To finish off our study of Monet, we painted outside like Monet did. It was a misty day and there was not much morning light. We talked about light and shadows. Then we searched for the perfect spot and set up our watercolors and canvas boards. We all tried our hand at Impressionist art.
We had a nice view of trees on the edge of some wetlands.
We then took a nature walk and climbed trees. My kids love to climb trees and are often above my head. They weren't very high off the ground this time.
This next picture from the park reminds me a little bit of one of Monet's famous pictures. Of course, this one is not a Japanesse bridge.
We fininshed our morning by sitting on our blanket and reading a picture book about Monet. I feel so blessed to be able to school my children this way.
