Wow! I was already going to do an art lesson on Claude Monet after reading this post:

Thanks, that link is great. You can get coloring books full of line drawings of the great masterpieces at Dover Publishing. And I tried the Chicago EDU link and it appears to be either broken or taken down :(
Here is the main link: http://store.doverpublications.com/
and here is the link to their art books! http://store.doverpublications.com/by-subject-art.html

It appears that the books I am referencing can be found under "Coloring Books" --Main link to that section: http://store.doverpublications.com/by-subject-coloring-books.html
And here is their collection of fine art coloring books. http://store.doverpublications.com/by-subject-coloring-books-fine-art-coloring-books.html

This is really great, too! I love how it has the artists listed per grade. Monet just happens to be for the 2nd grade which my son is in, so that works out well. (The site worked for me greenmother, give it another try).

I was looking at those Dover coloring books on Amazon last night. My son doesn't like to color though...but I was thinking of maybe getting them and getting pastels for him to use, instead of crayons. Maybe that change would entice him?

I'm also going to use this for the Monet study, looks very cool, my son loves to draw, but he loves to draw what he loves to draw, not what I want him to draw, so this could get tricky. I'm going to have to use my imagination to get him to do this, lol:

This one is awesome! Looks like I need to start writing up some art appreciation plans for next year lol. Between this and fitness/nutrition, I've been one busy mom.

These are supposed to be good books for art studies, I ordered a couple from my library:

"Katie Meets..." by James Mayhew

I just reserved a few Mayhew books at our library as well. I've heard great things about them. Also, try watercolor pencils - they are very fun to use and, Faygo, your son might enjoy these. Our girls love using them.
