  • Thanks so much. I was looking for some resources for my French 3 students on Impressionism and came across your powerpoint! On the top of my to do list was create a power point of the large ideas of impressionism. You just saved me a lot of time! Yours is incredibly complete and interactive. Way better than the one I was gonna make! Don't worry I'll cite my source!
