Monstera Abstract Watercolour Project

This Monstera Abstract Watercolour Project is a complete unit of work that asks students to use the silhouette of a monstera leaf to create a painting.  It includes the following stages:

  • Students research the work of Paul Klee and create a research page.
  • Students learn about abstract art.
  • Using monstera leaves, students create a design.
  • Watercolour techniques are applied and the colours are influenced by Paul Klee.

This download includes:

  • A 15-slide PowerPoint, pictured above, that guides your students through every step.  The images are static and the text is editable.
  • A 3-page written unit or work that includes 7 stages and lots of good advice and tips.
  • 4 Monstera leaves to create the design/composition.
  • Paul Klee Images to inspire the watercolour colour-choices.
  • An assessment rubric.  There are two versions of this resource, one with the spelling ‘colour’ and another with the spelling ‘color’.

Materials required: paper, watercolour, brushes and sea salt.

There are many more painting resources on The Arty Teacher.

    Sarah Crowther – The Arty Teacher

    I set up The Arty Teacher because I have a passion for my subject that I want to share with other art teachers around the world.

    I have been a high school art teacher for over 20 years, so I understand what it’s like to be in front of a class of students, often with very different abilities and attitudes.

    I wanted to develop resources that would help teachers to bring out the best in every student in every class. I also wanted to free-up staff from time-consuming lesson preparation to let them focus instead on delivering exciting, motivating, dynamic lessons, supported by excellent resources.
