The Charlotte Mason method of homeschooling has such a gentle, lovely way of introducing children to art. Simply show them the work of art and allow them to observe and enjoy it. Doesn’t that take such a load off of your back, Mom? I can tell you from experience that it makes art study an enjoyable experience.
If Charlotte Mason’s methods intrigue you and you’d like to learn more (or perhaps you’re already familiar with her methods), dive into this free Giotto Picture Study Aid. You’re going to love this 20-page download, online art collections, and book list!
