I am continuing to prepare for my up-coming trip to the Intimate Impressionism exhibit at the Legion of Honor. I love Claude Monet’s paintings and eagerly anticipate seeing some at this event. I am also contemplating another trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on a trip to New York later in the spring. So much to look forward to!!!
This week we are going to take a closer look at Claude Monet. There is so much information out there about Monet so don’t get overwhelmed. Keep it simple!

Use the notebook page above to create a simple record of your study. I am studying the painting shown on the notebook page: Sailboats on the Seine.
Just for fun, compare Monet’s painting to Gustave Caillebotte’s Sailboats on the Seine.
Look at your local public library for any children’s books on Monet. Share a little of the history of impressionism with them as well. I really like this book if you want to go deeper:Monet and the Impressionists for Kids: Their Lives and Ideas, 21 Activities (For Kids series)
