This popular Montessori seminar is now available in written format. Art History and Appreciation for the 3-9 year old is mapped out in an easy to follow curriculum plan. This is your first step toward having an art history curriculum in your classroom! Diana has mapped out an entire years' worth of art history lessons, month by month. No art knowledge is required, she's done the thinking for you. Delve in and discover not only how to teach art history to children but perhaps also discover your own appreciation for art (that maybe you didn't think you had!)
If you don't think you are ready to have an entire art history curriculum in your classroom this lesson can stand alone as a beautiful introduction to Japanese Art Prints.
Included in this download are instructions on how to create the materials, links for suggested artworks that support the lesson and other pertinent documents.
The artist featured in this chapter is Utagawa Hiroshige. You will gain an appreciation for his beautiful portrayal of ocean waves and of Mt. Fuji, beloved by him.
