Get ready for a very soothing and peaceful experience with the children. Educators, caregivers and parents will enjoy this change of pace and the children as well. We are going to explore impressionism and have loads of fun making our own unique painting on screen. After that let's all try to do an Impressionist painting. Here is some basic background of impressionism and various images of paintings.
Activity #1: Make an impressionist painting with this online neural doddle
Activity #2: View some real
Impressionist paintings & Color a Matching Coloring Page
2. Provide the children with
watercolors or diluted tempera in shades that are similar to the ones
in the paintings. These can be mixed in paper plates or clean
recycled Styrofoam trays. Ideally provide brushes with different
sizes and older children may work with Q-tips as well. Join the children in the painting project, it is fun!
Impressionist painters captured the moment in their canvases outdoors
-- try it if you can. Go outdoors to do the paintings!
