Charlotte Mason taught art appreciation in this way ~

“Children should learn pictures, line by line, group by group, by reading the pictures themselves.  After a short story of the artist’s life, the pictures are studied one at a time. Children look at it, taking in every detail.  Then the picture is turned over and the children tell what they have seen.  In this way, children become acquainted with a hundred great artists during their school life and it is an intimacy which never forsakes them.” (Vol. 6, pg. 214-215)

  16. I’m a veteran homeschool mom of 5 who’s been at it for 17 years, but I’ve never been able to teach art appreciation as well as I’d like. These ideas are wonderful! I’m combining your ideas with some from the Incredible Art Department (Princeton Online) and look forward to dabbling with the kids. Thank you for sharing freely! “[S]he who waters others will [her]self be refreshed.” Prov. 11:25

  25. A fellow teacher stumbled upon your blog and referred it to me. I am an elementary art teacher for a private Christian school in Baltimore, MD. I have been looking for some help with an art curriculum for a Bible based school and have had to piece things together. I am so happy for your blog and information to glean from. Thank you so much for freely sharing your work with the rest of us. I already printed out your armor of God picture for my students to color when they are looking for something to do. Thank you thank you thank you for your availability.
