When teaching art, you can bring this subject to life by reading living books on the lives of the great artists such as Leonardo da Vinci as pictured. Here is a list of Artist Biographies to Study. Simply choose an artist to read:
1 per month (9 yearly) or
1 per term (3-4 yearly)
and look at one Picture Study each week of that artist's works. This way you can get to know the artist and the art. Also, see how to easily fit art into a complete Enrichment Program here.
