Art for the new year

July 30, 2007

I put together our art appreciation studies for the new school year today.  This has always been a difficult subject for me to work in to our school day, but the kids LOVE it, and I find that if we have an exhibit to go see at the end of the study, I’m more likely to get it done.  Plus, the kids really get a kick out of seeing the real thing after they’ve only seen a poor facsimile printed by the computer.  I’d love to get the books to go along with the studies, but have only gotten a good deal on-line once – a $10 copy of Winslow Homer.  And our library is sorely lacking in this area.   If you’d like to see what we’ll be studying for the first quarter of this year, check out the School Stuff tab at the top of the page.
