impressionism with chalk + paint

I had the pleasure of taking our Girl Scout troop down to the
Cleveland Museum of Art for a lesson in Impressionism.
Our favorites were Monet’s Water Lilies and Degas’ Frieze of Dancers.

We followed up our lesson with an art project
by painting a landscape using chalk dipped in tempera paint.

found in the Impressionist style of painting.
Our Girl Scouts really got into it.
