MONET

Project URL: http://teachnet-lab.org/IS24/llangsner/claudemonet.htm

HOW IT WORKS

In this program, students explore and appreciate the life and work of Impressionist artist Claude Monet. They gather information to write a biography on him and sketch an original landscape in his style.
Teacher preparation steps include previewing appropriate Web sites for the students to gain an understanding of Impressionism and the work of Monet.

Student activities include viewing computer images of works by Impressionist artists in order to understand this period. The paintings are discussed and their unique and distinguishing qualities are listed on the board. Using the information gathered, each student writes a biography of Monet and prepares a sketch for an Impressionistic painting he/she will complete in class during a follow-up lesson.

The students’ work is assessed by their participation in discussions, as well as by their biographies and sketches.

WHAT YOU NEED

A computer with Internet access and software such as Claris Works 5.0 and Encarta ‘95/’98 is required.

THE STUDENTS

Participants are eighth-grade art students, but this program can be adapted to other grade levels.

STANDARDS

The students apply their understanding of art history to their own work, use computer technology to identify resources, and develop a well-written biographical study.

OVERALL VALUE

Impressionism represents an important part of art history. After studying Monet, one student said she now takes note of the light hitting the trees in her backyard at different times of the day.

TIPS

Trips to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Chicago Institute of Fine Arts are great complements to this lesson due to their extensive Impressionist collections.
