About the activity:

Claude Monet was born in Paris, France, and is famous for being one of the founders of Impressionism. Impressionism is an artistic style that is characterized by short, spontaneous brush strokes, thick paint, and vibrant colors that create the ide, or impression of a subject, rather than focusing on exact shapes and details. He was especially interested in the effect of the changing light on shadows, color, and mood of the subject. How does the morning sunlight look different from the light at noon? At sunset? Think about this today as you paint birch trees in the Impressionist style!

Materials needed:
