I have always admired the Charlotte Mason idea of picture study. However, my children generally prefer worksheets, and independence, with most of their homework. Therefore, I created this project as a compromise.
This picture study features Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Jean-Honore Fragonard, with six works from each one. If you do a picture study every other week, it will take 36 weeks (a full school year) to complete them all. In all, these lessons have three artists, 11 vocabulary words, and 18 works of art.
Each worksheet includes a small picture to study (I recommend finding the full size pictures elsewhere), a flashcard to fill out, a place to take notes about what you see, a question to answer, and a short passage to read about the picture. Each picture study should take about 15 minutes to complete.
Although this can be used as a standalone program, the pictures were chosen to correspond with the grammar course "English Lessons Through Literature: Level A" published by Barefoot Ragamuffin. Used by permission.
