    Join us for a two hour virtual tour of Claude Monet’s world and work!

    In Normandy, a tiny village named Giverny was lucky enough to host Monet’s house and beautiful gardens, the exact place that inspired his 250+ series of legendary Water Lilies. 

    Through this tour, we’ll have the opportunity to learn more about Monet’s life and art. We’ll brush up on the classics, the Impressionist movement, and will escape to Normandy for a little while.
