Introduction to famous artists – Monet

Here is a simple activity to introduce children to the work of Monet and the idea of impressionist painting.

Here are some of the resources I have gathered, along with another great book by Laurence Anholt  The Magical Garden of Claude Monet

I actually ran out of time to share this with the children (there is always next year) but I really enjoyed my practice!

  1. Truly lovely, Lucy! It’s magical how all those ‘dabs’ of colour create such beautiful impressions. I think this is a wonderful activity to provide children studying Monet in their Children’s House. They get to create an artwork themselves, in Monet’s style, rather than just looking at prints of his works. You are so creative and the children you work with so lucky. Meg:)
