This week during our French adventure, we left Paris and headed over to Monet's Garden.There are two docents who run the early group but this summer Froggy seems to be blue and with the same docent. This week though we started with the painting rather than the story. As an added bonus, children got to how some other patrons use the museum. This artist was creating a reproduction of another Monet painting right next to their presentation. It was a wonderful distraction.
She also introduced them to Claude Monet himself and gave a brief biography.
Then they got to make their own art using pastels. They were given a sketch of Monet's The Japanese Footbridge.
And here is Froggy with her finished artwork in front of Monet's painting.
