As a Charlotte Mason homeschooler, artist study has been a constant over the years. While I haven’t documented all our studies, I made resources pages for many of them that I have compiled on this page for you.
Briefly: How We Do Artist Study
Most of the time, we focus on one artist per month in our home. One day each week consists of a different picture study using one piece of art from the artist. On that same day (art day), we will spend time reading about the artist using living literature (affiliate link) and/or trying our hands at a “copycat” art or art using the same styles or media as the artist.
That’s it. Art and artist study once a week!
Our Artist Studies
Some of the posts contain more info than others, but each of them include at least: our picture study choices, information resources we used, and one or more of the projects we completed.
A Unique Way To Add Artist Study
On occasion, I’ve been a tad overwhelmed with “fitting it all in”. During those times, I’ve enjoyed putting together simple art centers that my children were expected to visit independently.
Enjoy artist study at your house!
