Art Appreciation featuring Fine Art Pages
You want to introduce your children to fine art, but lack the time and method for follow-through, right? Fine Art Pages are the answer! These downloadable, printable collections feature one piece of art per page, plus *just enough* information about the piece and the artist. The method is organic: print ’em out, put ’em up. Let your family observe, absorb, and enjoy! It works. And best of all: it doesn’t run on Mom Power! Would you like to see a sample? Click here!
Christian Krohg Fine Art Pages: $4.00
Norwegian artist Christian Krohg was an illustrator and naturalist painter who was inspired by the realism art movement. This collection includes 7 pieces of his art, plus one by his artist wife, that depict both adventure of the seafaring life, and the domestic life of mothers at home. A nice mix for Enrichment Studies families! Collection includes the Fine Art Pages, full page versions, and our fun and helpful guide, “How to Use Fine Art Pages in Your Home.”
Well, both girls became very excited when we saw two Matisse prints hanging in our local public library. (Fine Arts pages by Matisse happen to be hanging in the upstairs bathroom right now.) I reminded the girls that the artist was Matisse. And then my 4-year old (who is always interested in the titles of the paintings) said to me, “I know what that painting there is called,” and she paused. “Dessert: Harmony in Red,” she said correctly. The library security guard standing nearby nearly fell over, she was so surprised. 🙂
Anyhow, I just wanted to thank you for helping expose my family to Fine Arts — you have truly enriched our lives, and it’s making a difference in our learning.
