As a parent, artist, and art teacher, my hope is that every child would be able to identify great works of art, understand the artist and art movement of the period, posess the ability to recognize characteristics, and understand the historical timeframe each of these masterpieces came from.
This handwritten, hand-drawn labor of love is just the start of my journey to attain this goal.
Learn, through a brief explanation, what makes the artist and their work, unique and important. Each of the five lessons include a coloring page, photo of the work, colored examples with drawing and/or coloring tips, word search and vocabulary worksheets, writing prompts, and comprehension exercises.
Part 2 covers five iconic works from the Renaissance to Japanese ukiyo-e, including:
"The Sistine Cherubs" by Raphael, Italian - Late Renaissance, 1512
"The Taj Mahal" Mughal Architecture, India, 1632-1652
"Las Meninas" by Diego Velasquez, Spain - Baroque art, 1656
"The Blue Boy" by Thomas Gainsborough England - Rococo Art, 1779
"The Great Wave" by Hokusai, Japan - Ukiyo-e, 1830
Includes answer keys, an additional coloring page of the five works combined into one, and an exercise to identify each masterpiece.
Anyone can learn how to view and understand art. Learning visually about our rich, cultural history, we gain a better understanding and appreciation of one another as well as the world we live in.
