Claude Monet and Andy Warhol

Here was today’s art history lesson:

Claude Monet
-1840 to 1946
-Paris, France
-Impressionist
-Water Lilies

Andy Warhol
-1928 to 1987
-American
-Hypochondriac
-Pop Art
-Silk Screen
-Soup Cans
-“In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.”

I had Luke, Ben, Luke and Isabel look at this painting and collectively write a poem.  They each added a line.c

They then colored their own lily pads and lilies and painted over with a watery blue paint.  They loved how the blue made the white crayon show.  This one is Isabel’s…

I couldn’t think of an art project to go along with Andy Warhol, but he is one of my favorite crazy artists so I have to add this pic!

  1. during dinner, Aaron asked the boys what they learned about at art. Ben spoke up and said, We wrote a poem and painted over lily pads and flowers with sparkly blue paint.. cause we learned about Money. And then we talked about another artist, but I can’t remember his name. All I know is he liked to paint soup cans.
