Art appreciation lessons are time-consuming for me because
1. I want to give some biographical background.
2. I want to find a photo of the art so the children and I can discuss it.
3. I want to do an art project to remind us of the artist we just learned about.
Since I am doing all this work for my own children’s art lessons, I thought I would at times share it with my readers. We’re all busy moms. Maybe you aspire to add art appreciation to your week but just can’t find the time to look up an artist, choose an art print, forage through Pinterest for an art project and then put it all together as a lesson. You won’t have to. Take the artist bio I have written, read it aloud at some meal when the kids are happily munching on food, or at bedtime as part of your read aloud time. Then, show them the print and ask them the questions I provided (and your own if you think of more), and you will have done art appreciation without having to do any work. If you have time and want to do a cool project, the instructions are there.
