My third grade students completed this project in one class session (50 minutes). This could easily be adapted for a younger or older age group. Students really enjoyed painting in the Impressionist style! What I liked most about this project is that they were all successful, but they were also all very different and varied due to the students' individual brushstrokes, speed, and style.
