‘My Monet’ Book Set

‘My Monet’ and ‘Colour Me Monet’, FIF’s fresh approach to engaging children with art history.

In conjunction with the ‘Monet, Monet’ fundraiser and ‘Spirit of Place’ exhibition, First Initiative Foundation (FIF) created and supported a fantastic educational initiative – a storybook and accompanying colouring book teaching children about the artwork of Monet.

The children’s adventure story follows the much loved character Oowa who travels in time to meet Monet and learn about his life and art. In English and Chinese, the book explains what Oowa can see in the paintings and provides an interactive section of questions to help children review what they have learned. The colouring book allows them to be their own artist as they colour Monet’s painting.

This important educational initiative gently guides and encourages children to interpret the beauty of Monet’s paintings for themselves.
