Artists have been painting animals from the beginning! Some of the very first paintings ever made are pictures of animals! Prehistoric artists made paintings of bison, lions, horses and other animals on cave walls.
Artists have been painting, drawing, and sculpting animals ever since! Some artists have painted animals realistically (like you would see in a photo).
Some artists paint abstract animals with lots of colors and in mixed-up ways!
How will you make animal art?

Claude Monet (MO-NAY) (1840-1926) is one of the world’s most famous artists and he is the most famous for his paintings of waterlilies!
Monet liked to paint outside so he could capture how the light and weather changed his surroundings. Because he was painting outside, he had to paint fast before the light changed. His pictures were quick impressions- so his style of art became known as Impressionism.
Monet lived and painted in a beautiful country house in France with gorgeous gardens. In those gardens he would paint the same scene again and again to see how it changed with the seasons and the light!
Below you will find many activities to help you make art like Monet!
