In science we have been working on the African Grasslands. We have been learning about the habitat and the different animals. Well I have been wanting to add some art into our curriculum as it’s been a while since we had the chance to do art. I stumbled up on Ndebele House art. It was a lesson plan in one of my art subscriptions. Even though we didn’t study the Ndebele people I thought it would be fun to tie it in as a theme.
A couple weeks ago I had picked Claude Monet for an artist for the kids to study. It was rather fascinating learning about him. I had no idea that Impressionism was named after is painting Impression, Sunrise (1873).
Claude Monet 1840 to 1926 – France (Europe) – Impressionism
Claude Monet was an Impressionist painter and a man who loved his garden. He loved painting nature. Some of the things he painted was the river Seine, the Thames, and his own garden. He repeatedly painted things but they were never exactly the same. The reason for this was that he looked for difference in light and the time of day.
