Students will be inspired by the work of
the Impressionsists and work in a variety of media to make beautiful
images. Students will learn about artists of the period such as Monet, Renoir, Pissaro, Sisley and Degas. They will explore the techniques of these masters to make their own artworks full of light and colour.
