Impressionism Art

This fun rain craft is the perfect way to introduce kids to impressionism art. This style of art is not exact, but rather the blended colors and stroke give the impression of the subject matter, rather than an accurate representation.

What you need for this fun, and easy-to-replicate rain craft is watercolor paper and markers.

Have your child draw a picture using bold strokes rather than exact lines. Flower, bridges, sunsets, etc. make great subject matters and were favorite things for Impressionist famous artists like these:

claude monet  renoir  paul cezanne  pissaro  mary cassatt  claude monet water lilies  edgar degas

We finished our quick stroke impression for kids picture of lupine flowers with markers – making sure to get a variety or greens, purples, and browns in the picture.

Rain Art

This is such a fun rain art project for kids to make

Now put your impressionism art project for kids in the rain (or use a spray bottle if there is no rain in the forecast). Leave it out just long enough to get the colors to blend – a matter of seconds will do. Now you have a beautiful rain art.

HINT: Don’t leave your artwork in the rain to long or the markers will run off the paper completely.

blot the picture if there are any colors you'd like to stop from running

Bring paper inside and set on a paper towel to dry. Feel free to blot the picture if their is any marker running where you don’t want it to go and then allow the colors to absorb in the paper and dry to “set” the colors.
