Art Appreciation Course
My Homeschool Art Appreciation Enrichment Course
Our Art Appreciation Course includes resources to help you incorporate picture study into your homeschool. Do this during your group study time around once or twice a week. You could also use this as an independent activity for older children if you wish by having them examine a painting a week.
Charlotte Mason believed picture study was an important part of a child’s education.
“Children from age 6 should not only be encouraged to create art, but to appreciate it also. Children will develop a comfortable fondness with what they get used to seeing and this is why we encourage children to look at excellent art…We cannot measure the influence that one or another artist has upon the child’s sense of beauty, upon his power of seeing, as in a picture, the common sights of life; he is enriched more than we know in having really looked at even a single picture. It is a mistake to think that colour is quite necessary to children in their art studies. They find colour in many places, and are content, for the time, with form and feeling in their pictures.” Charlotte Mason
Australian Art Appreciation
We include some indigenous art study resources and some famous Australian art works to study.
World Masters Art Appreciation
World Masters Picture Study introduces fine art to your child in an easy to use format especially designed for homeschoolers! Use this in your group study time as an easily accessible way to learn about some of the greatest artists and their finest works.
Selection Of Artwork
The art works have been set out in historical periods, with painters from the 16th century to the 20th. You can focus on one artist at a time and get to know their style and several of their works. There are at least two works from each artist. To complete this study in a year you may like to study 4 artists (8 pictures) per term.
Theme Based Picture Study
We also have various art book list suggestions for art styles, themes and historical periods.
This course is provided free when you become a member. It’s suitable for Kindergarten to Year Eight. Ages 5 to 14
