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 or for your use as an Art Docent!
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!)
