The Fuzzy Flowers of Impressionism
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Claude Monet invented a new art style. He showed how things looked if you just glance at them quickly. His paintings look a bit fuzzy, as though you can't see very well. This style is called Impressionism.
 
2     Impressionism started in Paris. It began in the 19th century. Each Impressionist liked different subjects. Claude Monet liked to paint fuzzy water lilies. The pond was in his village. It had a small bridge in it. Monet watched how the pond looked at different times of day. He watched the sunlight sparkle on the water. He saw how sunlight changed the scene.
 
3     Other Impressionists used color in a new way. Auguste Renoir liked to use intense colors. He painted two sisters. One sister had a red hat on her head. He wanted the red color to "sound like a bell." What do you think he meant by that? Maybe, he wanted his red hat to look very bright. He put green feathers on the hat so that it looked even redder.
