Linnea in Monets Garden
Kids who are still more interested in Saturday morning cartoons than stuffy old art will find todays free Family Flicks screening, Linnea in Monets Garden, pretty fun. The animated Swedish movie, a 1994 Parents Choice Award winner, is just 30 minutes long and based on a popular book about a young girl who visits Monets Paris. Linnea and her neighbor wander through the picturesque landscape, pointing out spots recognizable from the Impressionists paintings. They also explain Monets painting techniques. Linnea in Monets Garden is a cool half hour that cleverly -disguises any learning as fun. 2 and 3 p.m. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet.
