This is the fourth post in our Famous Artist Series.

If you enjoy learning about different artists in your homeschool you will love this series on famous artists. There are so many wonderful artists out there that you can study, but I have picked some of our personal favorites to highlight. Studying artists and their works of art go along great with a Charlotte Mason style education, and you can also pair it up with history as well. Each week in this series we will be highlighting an artist, with free resources, printables and unit studies to give you an in depth study. This week is Claude Monet.

Claude Oscar Monet was born in Paris, France in 1840. He was a revolutionary with his painting technique and was one of the first impressionist artists who founded the Impressionist Movement. He is most famous for his beautiful water landscape and garden scene paintings. He love nature and got most of his inspiration from his gardens and flowers. He was so happy tending and painting in his gardens in Giverny.
