I have been having a lot of fun writing this Artist Study Series. Since we enjoy a Charlotte Mason style education, I have found that artist study is something that we like to incorporate in our weekly studies. In this series I have picked some of our favorite artists that we have studied in the past that I think you and your kids will enjoy learning about in your homeschool. This week we are learning about an American favorite: Norman Rockwell with free resources, printables and unit studies.

Norman Rockwell is a well-known American artist of the Modern Era in the 20th Century. He was born in New York in 1894. He has been drawing as a child and even left highschool to attend an art school. When he was only 18 years old he became the editor of Boys Life Magazine where his paintings were officially launched with Boy Scouts of America. He is most known for his paintings and drawings of everyday American life and his covers for The Saturday Evening Post.
