If you’re a preschool teacher or homeschool mama, then you’re for sure not going to want to miss this awesome Monet’s Flowers Invitation to Create Process Art Experience. And don’t forget to add it to your next Artist Study or Art Studio preschool monthly theme!
If you missed last week’s post, the little guy and I finished up A to Zoo Animals and got started with our Art Studio preschool monthly theme.
Claude Monet painted many different types of flowers such as gardens, ponds, or vases.
We are totally loving this theme. And especially considering we’re all about being creative. And of course bonus points for studying artists in preschool, right?
Thanks for visiting! If you’re interested in following along with what we’re up to each week, definitely sign up via email and/or follow The Keeper of the Memories on Facebook, and Pinterest. This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy here.

Art Studio Preschool Monthly Theme: Monet’s Flowers Invitation to Create Process Art Experience
What you’ll need
- Inspiration Photo
- Pokey Ball
- Paper Frame
Here’s how to do it
- Set out the inspiration photo and any additional materials.
- What colors and shapes do you see on Monet’s painting?
- How will you create flowers on your paper?
- Could you use a pokey ball as a stamping tool?
- Will you add any details to your flowers? Leaves, stems, centers?
- Did the child stamp with the pokey ball?
- Did he demonstrate fine motor control with his hands?
The little guy intuitively knew to use the pokey ball to stamp. It definitely wasn’t the first time that we’ve explored this idea, though. If you remember a while back, we did this fun Dandelion Invitation to Create Flower Art. Similar concept. Totally different outcome.
I love seeing how his art has changed in the last few years. That’s one of the best things about being a homeschool mama! You’re there to experience the firsts, see their progress, and to watch your little kids grow.
Don’t forget to stop by next week if you’re interested in seeing what we’re up to with our Art Studio theme. And if you missed this year’s preschool homeschool space post, you can check it out here.
