Kindergarden-Monet's Water Lilies. Tissue paper and water Color.

I used artist low tack tape to boarded the water color paper. Using blue, purple and or green,
the kids painted a wash (I use watered down acrylic paint) onto the paper.
Meanwhile; prepare Lily pads by cutting shades of green tissue paper in the shape of an oval. Use shades of purple, yellow, pinks and white to represent the flower. I wrap the tissue paper around the eraser end of a penile so the flower stands up.
When wash is dry, add lily pads and flowers.

This is always a fun and successful project.
