Claude Monet

Date: 24th Jan 2017 @ 8:39am

Our 'Be Creative Fortnight' is about to begin and all of our little Robins are excited for the activities we have planned ahead. Each class has their own artist to research, explore and create work around. In Year 5, we have chosen Claude Monet - a French painter whose most famous pieces include working with a variety of watercolour techniques and observing subtle changes in colour and light.

If you have any thoughts on Monet please share them so we can discuss this in class.

Even though we've only started learning about Claude Monet I'm actually enjoying it. Even if we have to paint our own versions of his artwork with watercolours which is actually quite difficult...

I was really interested when I did my homework because I learnt a lot about Claude Monet. I was most interested when I researched about him and I found out that his actual name is Oscar Claude Monet.
