Art is essential in expanding the horizons of children beyond everyday life. Children that are exposed to art early, are known to do better and go further in life as art creates an inner connection within the child to its outer environment.

Holding a workshop on "IMPRESSIONISM the French Art Movement of mid 19th century" at Turner Fenton Secondary School' Brampton on behalf of Imaginons Le Francais Conference



(Claude Monet's "Impression Sunrise". It gave rise to the name of the Impressionist movement.)
I am looking forward to hold an 'art workshop' tomorrow on "IMPRESSIONISM the French Art Movement of mid 19th century" with over 100 students at 'Turner Fenton Secondary School' Brampton ... 
Dated 1872, its subject is the harbour of Le Havre in France, using very loose brush strokes that suggest rather than delineate it. Monet explained the title later:
"Landscape is nothing but an impression, and an instantaneous one, hence this label that was given us, by the way because of me. I had sent a thing done in Le Havre, from my window, sun in the mist and a few masts of boats sticking up in the foreground. ... They asked me for a title for the catalogue, it couldn't really be taken for a view of Le Havre, and I said: 'Put Impression.' "
It was first displayed in 1874 during the first independent art show of the Impressionists (who were not yet known by that name). Critic Louis Leroy, inspired by the painting's name, titled his hostile review of the show in Le Charivari newspaper, "The Exhibition of the Impressionists", thus inadvertently naming the new art movement. He wrote: "Impression—I was certain of it. I was just telling myself that, since I was impressed, there had to be some impression in it … and what freedom, what ease of workmanship! Wallpaper in its embryonic state is more finished than that seascape." (Wikipedia)
Workshop is on behalf of the Imaginons Le Francais Conference
