About Claude Monet (1840-1926)

Claude Monet was a French Impressionist painter. Born in 1840, he is widely considered to be one of the pioneers of the Impressionist movement and one of the greatest landscape painters of all time. Monet's works are characterized by their loose brushwork, bright colors, and emphasis on light and atmosphere. He was known for his innovative techniques, such as capturing the changing effects of light and color in a scene, and his works often capture the beauty of nature in a fresh and spontaneous way.

Monet's series of water lilies, haystacks, and Rouen Cathedral are among his most famous works, and his paintings continue to be celebrated for their incredible beauty and innovative techniques. Today, Monet's works can be found in major museums around the world, and he remains one of the most famous and beloved artists of all time.

I first discovered MTM eight years ago at Legacy Prep Academy in Utah. I signed up to volunteer and I was blown away! It was simple, informative, and so much fun. The structure of the scripted lesson plans made it so easy to present to students. Art history, technique, creative inspiration, cultural literacy! All these things presented in a way that is fun and easy to retain. It is a joy for the students and the adults lucky enough to be teaching them!
