Last week I shared how I am preparing for a trip to the Intimate Impressionism exhibit at the Legion of Honor.

I would love to share some simple links for you to learn a little more about Edgar Degas.

Printable Degas Biography for Children

Art in the Picture:Degas – Make sure to preview this site before sharing with your children for appropriateness of the paintings.

Use the notebook page below to create a simple record of your study. I am studying the painting shown on the notebook page: Self Portrait 1863.

Degas Notebook Page

Look at your local public library for any children’s books on Degas. 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)
