We love art and this year we are studying Impressionists.
Because we have done so much art this year I have decided to create a new art page with a summary of all the art appreciation lessons, art activities and downloads related to our art.
We use Charlotte Mason’s approach and study each artist and his/her works over a few weeks. She says,
“Children should learn pictures, line by line, group by group, reading, not books, but pictures themselves.
… After a short story of the artist’s life … the pictures are studied one at a time. Children learn not merely to see a picture but to look at it, taking in every detail.”
Charlotte Mason recommended studying one artist at a time so children become aware of that artist’s style and can recognize his works even when that particular painting was not studied.
On this page you will find the shortlinks and examples of all our art lessons and activities.
To view this new page click on the tab Art Ideas above the header picture.
I will continue to add our art activities to this page, so please click on my RSS feed or subscribe to receive emails of my latest posts just under my gravatar.
I hope these art lessons inspire you to give art a try in your homeschool! 🙂
