This book is part of a series and I already know that I will enjoy whichever one comes next. This entry on Monet provides a brief biography and time line so that young artists will know more about who Monet was and and when he lived. They will also learn how the Impressionists got their name. In addition, there is information on what materials are needed in order to complete the projects in the book. That taken care of, creating can begin.
Readers discover how Monet used his senses in his art, especially looking at what he saw en plein air (outside). Students are encouraged to copy some of the artist’s works (not sure I could do that), to make some from their imagination and even with stickers. Some examples of projects include
How to Show Things Move Like Monet
How to Color Like Monet and
How to Make an Impression Like Monet
At the end of the book there is information about each of the paintings in the book. All in all, this was a good introduction to Monet and a chance for young artists to create.
