World Unit : France : The Impressionist, Pierre-August Renoir



Pierre-August Renoir, the third Impressionist we study in our France unit of study this past spring.


From the book we used to study most of the artists this time, we picked this activity to study Renoir. “How to Draw a Face.”


Faces, I find it so hard to draw, but this one was a fun activity.

As with the other artists, Siena and Lucas add few pages into their notebook, where we are keeping all of our studies on France together.


At the end of their notebook, they have black (card stock) pages to glue postcards or prints of the paintings.  We go to this website, Siena and Lucas each decide which paintings they’d like to keep and remember the artist by, and we print them at home for their notebook.  It’s been fun and their notebooks look so nice.

We also painted with tempera.  An activity from this book.

These are the resources we used to study Renoir:

Hope you can use these resources.  As always, let me know if you have others.  Thanks!
