Fun Art Education


The art education taking place in our home is informal, to say the least. But over the years we have enjoyed learning about several different artists.

This week we've thoroughly enjoyed reading Camille and the Sunflowers A Story About Vincent van Gogh by Laurence Anholt. We also read Picasso and the Girl With a Ponytail A story about Pablo by the same author. These are just simple picture book stories that are based on facts about famous artists. I would say they are geared toward elementary students but I really enjoy reading them, therefore, I believe they could be for all ages!

I learn best from children's books, right alongside my own kids. This one looks wonderful!
Nice job on the links and pictures!
