31 Picture Books for Art Appreciation:

I am excited to travel through art history with you and share a great picture book each day that will inspire young artists. I have tried to choose living books that share something about an artists life. For some of the early art eras, in which I could not pinpoint a specific artist, I chose picture books that were set in the time, or whose illustrations were in the style of the era or depicted life in that era.

Each featured book will be followed by other corresponding books, or literary go-alongs, as well as a link to an art project.

Please join us through art history. Subscribe by email so you won’t miss any of the art timeline.  Be sure to pin this introductory post as each day we will add the post of the day to the list.
