Young artists visit Paris to learn about the Impressionists
YOUNGSTERS from The Woodroffe School at Lyme Regis crossed the Channel to learn more about one of the great art movements.
Seventeen year-8 students went to Paris and Giverny to find out about the French Impressionists of the late 19th century.
They began with a visit to Musée d’Orsay where the finest art works by Monet, Manet, Degas, Pissaro, Cézanne, Sizley, and many more can be seen.
The next day they visited the house in Giverny – 60 miles north of the capital – where Monet lived and designed his famous gardens for his water-lily paintings.
Evenings were spent wandering around more exciting places of Paris, all within walking distance of their hotel.
An exhibition of work by Year 8 students opens at Lyme Regis medical centre tomorrow (Thursday).
