What's New in the Art Room? 5th grade is learning about the 1870’s artistic movement called Impressionism.  We are learning about the artists responsible for Impressionism like Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Camille Pissarro.  Now, thanks to Donorschoose.org and some very generous donors, we get to experience painting like an Impressionist as well!
