Grimaldi Forum hosts Monet-inspired art classes for children

monet art class

Until the end of July, the Grimaldi Forum is organising art classes for children inspired by its grand summer exhibition, Monet: en pleine lumière

The classes are running each day until Friday 28th July, with a morning class between 10am and noon suitable for young artists aged five to eight, and another in the afternoon from 2pm till 4pm for those aged nine to 12. 

The focus of Monday classes is colour theory, giving children a special insight into building a successful palette with primary, secondary and complementary colours.  

On Tuesdays, students will experiment with brushes and sponges to achieve the signature Monet look. 

Wednesdays will teach budding artists how to compose an impressionist landscape of their own making, drawing from any source of inspiration.  

Pattern and abstraction will be the theme on Thursdays, with a focus on observation and understanding the art of perspective. 

Fridays will see children take on the classic Monet motif of the water lily to create a water landscape using the techniques learned over the course of the week. 

The art classes cost €25 each or €110 for a week of tuition.  

To reserve a spot for your child, please email with the words “ateliers enfants” and the child’s name in the subject line.  

The main exhibition: Monet: en pleine lumière 

The 2,500sqm exhibition space at the Grimaldi Forum has been transformed into a homage to Claude Monet’s time on the French Riviera and in Monaco, and features almost 100 paintings and artworks from this time, including many masterpieces never seen before in this context and one unpublished work.  

The exhibition is on every day until 3rd September. Adult admission is €14, but those under 18 can enter for free.
