Impressionist Artist Study: Monet


For her project this term Lillie is learning all about the Impressionist painters.  I have set her particular goals so that this project will hopefully stretch her a bit more than her artist studies last term.

General Resources

She will be using the following books throughout her project:

Goals for this study

  • Read about Monet and his Paintings and create a scrap book page with a gallery of Monet’s paintings and a short biography:monet1 monet2
  • Read about Monet’s use of colour and light and create a scrapbook page of your findings:monet-3 monet-4 monet-5
  • Carry out a study of your chosen painting and write a blog post reviewing it.  Lillie has finally got her blog up and running and I am sure she would love for you to pop over a follow along 🙂  You can find it here or by clicking the picture: capture
  • Copy your chosen painting for your own gallery for your final presentation:monet-7 monet-6

This was a really great study, which she thoroughly enjoyed.  Lillie and I were even able to see the original Monet in the National Gallery:


Over the next couple of weeks she will be focusing on Renoir, concentrating particularly on the portrayal of facial features.


  1. She really did an awesome job with her painting and research! More talent in her little finger than I have in my entire body!
