The 2nd grade is learning about impressionist artist, Claude Monet. We learn about Linnea in Monet’s Garden, which is a book and a short movie, and I have both! I love Linnea and how we learn about Monet’s gardens, his life, and his family. It’s a great way to make personal connections with artworks! The 2nd grade learns about Monet and then creates their own garden landscape based on Monet’s Japanese bridge paintings.
Don’t forget the warm and cool colors. Which can you find in Monet’s paintings?
