Welcome to the first of many art history lessons by CK Montessori. 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. 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 art.
Included in this pack are instructions on how to present your first lesson, information for your own reference, and art cards for you to print and use right away. All artworks are used with permission.
Artists include: Alida Withoos, Pieter Claesz, Floris Claesz, Dirck de Bray, Balthasar van der Ast, Rembrandt Harmensz, Johannes Cornelisz, Marie Wandscheer, Johannes Vermeer, Vincent van Gogh, Willem van de Velde (II), Johan Barthold Jongkind, Paulus Constantijn la Fargue, Paul Joseph Constantin Gabriël, Philips Koninck, & Johan Hendrik Weissenbruch
