PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This writing activity celebrates Claude Monet’s love of nature. As the founder of Impressionism, he spent his time painting outdoors, “en plein air.” In this activity, students use a favorite outdoor setting to inspire the writing of a song adaptation. Students also create an accompanying piece of art, with directions on how to have students experience Monet’s short brush stroke technique. Song reference, detailed lesson plans, and a printable for student writing are all included. Children can sing their new songs and show their art as a culminating activity!

This activity is part of a Claude Monet Artist Study, which is a portion of our complete Artist Biography Unit.
