I have taken many classes with Marie, and this one is among my favorites. Visiting Giverny with her gave me a fuller, richer understanding of Monet's life and work. She is an excellent guide, and her passion is contagious. I look forward to more classes with Marie!
This was a beautifully put-together lecture. Very informative about Monet, his times and work, and the gardens at Giverny and their context as a French/Japanese garden. One of the best lectures I've seen on Context Learning and I have seen a LOT of lectures.
Mlle Dessaillen gave us a passionate and extremely informative presentation on the life of Claude Monet, his great works and the gardens that were both purpose-built for and inspired his paintings. The graphics she included were a visual feast and we came away understanding the many aspects of the paintings he made of the gardens. She also gave us tips on when to go and how to look at the gardens and his paintings should we get a chance to visit Giverny.
Marie was well educated in the material presented and I was glued to my screen for 2 hours!
