Impressionist Painting Scavenger Hunt Printable Notebook Page

The Banks of the Seine at Argenteuil, Auguste Renoir. 1880.

For some young friends of mine I have created a little printable to use in studying an Impressionist style painting.

Impressionists paintings are a lot of fun to view with children because the subjects are often very simple and appealing. The Impressionist style uses colors that are vibrant and there are so many interesting things to discover in the artwork.

Impressionist Scavenger Hunt

Use this Impressionist Painting Scavenger Hunt printable to see what you can find during your next Impressionist picture study.

  • We printed ours out, slipped it into a sheet protector and then used a dry erase marker to cross off the things we found in our painting.
  • When you are finished, wipe off your sheet and save it in your art notebook for your next Impressionist study.

You can use this printable along with the Impressionist paintings found on my Summer Art Pinterest board. If you missed my last post, I shared a free notebook page for Claude Monet. Follow the Pinterest board or this blog so you won’t miss any of the summer art ideas that I will be sharing as the season goes by.

For More In-Depth Impressionist Study:
We have enjoyed the book Monet and the Impressionists for Kids: Their Lives and Ideas, 21 Activities (For Kids series) in our family over the years. It is much more than an activity book with loads of wonderful information to learn about each of the featured artists.

Harmony Fine Arts: Free Summer 2009 Art and Music Appreciation Plans

How would you like to have some relaxed plans for art and music appreciation this summer? I have pulled together six weeks’ worth of ideas for you to use with your family. I have chosen an artist and a composer for you and put down some specific plans for listening, viewing, and follow-up for each.

I have packaged them all up into a neat little PDF for you to download for free.

The plans introduce the music of Felix Mendelssohn and the paintings of Claude Monet in this mini-unit. The plans also include every print I suggest and you can view them in the PDF, online, or you can print them out if you wish. I have created simple artist biography and composer biography notebook pages for you to print out as well.

You can chose to use as much or as little of the plans as you wish. You can use them right now or file them away for later.

My hope is that once you get a taste of art and music appreciation this summer with your children that you will not want to give it up once you start back to school in the fall. My Harmony Fine Arts plans will be ready and waiting for any families that want to continue with your studies after you finish the six weeks’ worth of art and music appreciation.

All you need to get started is to download the file, read the simple to understand instructions, gather a few supplies, and then enjoy the time with your family!

I suggest these two CDs in the plans, but you can use any Mendelssohn music you have on hand.
