About This Online Learning Resource

The Saint Louis Art Museum is excited to present this new online teaching and learning resource that takes a closer look at one of the key works of art in the Museum’s collection–Claude Monet’s Water Lilies (c. 1915-26). Intended for use by teachers and educators, this resource provides an in-depth investigation of this well-known painting and its cultural context while offering questions and activities to extend learning in a variety of ways.

This interactive resource also reflects the Museum’s commitment to develop professional partnerships with teachers and co-produce resources that support innovative classroom learning and enhance the student experience here at the Museum. For this website, members of the Museum’s Teacher Advisory Group from across grade levels and subject areas worked closely with Museum staff for over one year to identify and research key themes, topics, and questions. The success of this resource is in large measure a product of their participation in this project as well as their dedication to ensure that Monet’s Water Lilies continues to inspire each generation.
