American Museum of Art Giverny
Known for its visitors and resident impressionist artists (including painter Claude Monet who is probably the best known), the town of Giverny also has a Museum of American Art. Inaugurated in 1992 by American businessman and collector Daniel J. Terra, the museum's main interest is art that resulted from the spiritual bonding between American artists and Monet. As well as the museum's permanent collection, temporary exhibitions are shown here on a regular basis.

These workshops last around one and a half hours and are free for museum visitors. Phone to reserve a place (all the necessary artist's materials are provided, so there's no need to bring your own).
