Artist Study {Claude Monet}

Impression Sunrise
Monet's Garden exhibition is currently on display here in Melbourne at the National Gallery of Victoria. This has inspired us to spend a delightful month studying Monet and the Impressionist art era. Last Friday we took a trip into Melbourne and enjoyed a lovely day exploring of the gallery.  In preparation for the trip we spent some time exploring the life and work of Monet. Here are some of the resources that we used.

All in all we have really enjoyed this artistic adventure and look forward to future artisit studies.

  9. Chareen that is a gorgeous painting. Makes me want to go back and study Monet all over again ... :)

    Have you seen the Mike Venezia books on artists, composers, US presidents, etc.? My daughters adore his books and we used the Monet one when we studied him.

    1. Thank you for reminding me about Mike's book. We used that first and I had forgotten all about it. Added it to the list now.

      I agree I like that print too :)
