Here’s a wonderful page that’s chock full of art appreciation lessons, art activities and downloads from Nadene Esterhuizen at PracticalPages. Of particular interest are the excellent resources about famous artists & their work, and an extensive art era timeline.
As Nadene writes in her introduction, these follow the Charlotte Mason method of study:
“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.”
These are excellent art history/appreciation tools for all ages!
