Click this link to hear a story about Monet!
In 1985, a French artist named Claude Monet thought to himself, "I want to paint the beauty and tranquillity of my Lily garden. I want to create paintings that are so large that they would go around the room, people could walk in and be surrounded by the light!"
What do you think if these paintings?
How do they make you feel?

With help, cut circles out of your green paper and tissue paper. These will be your lily pads and flowers! Go ahead and place the green lily pads in your wet pond. Fold your tissue paper circles in half, and then in half again. Use your marker to color in both sides, and add a few drops of water to help the color spread! This will give you a beautiful watercolor effect. Open them back to a circle and lay them to dry.
Now you have your very own Monet Water Lily pond!
