“I just purchased the Picture Study Portfolio featuring the works from Giotto at our homeschool conference today!! WOW!!! These are beautiful, the colors are amazing, absolutely worth every penny. I am so excited to start picture studies with this artwork (we’re new to CM). Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I cannot imagine getting nicer, larger sized prints at a museum shop, even! Thank you so very much for putting these together, your SCM team is the best!!”—MonikaNC
“We are doing the Giotto study and we love it! The story was interesting and memorable to my kids, the pictures are high quality, and the information in the book is very helpful for our discussions. Picture study is one of those things I always had good intentions about, but rarely got around to; now we are doing it every week. To me this kit is such a bargain, especially since it saves me the trouble of trying to find everything myself. I hope you publish more–I will buy all of them.”—Amee
“I just received my Velasquez and Rembrandt kits. Wow!! Just what I was looking for. Everything is set out for me, and the quality of the prints is superb. Thank you!”—Kim
“The portfolios are wonderful and the prints gorgeous…are you planning more artists in the future?”—Linda
Yes, Linda, we are! In fact, we are pleased to announce three more Picture Study Portfolios are now available. These three collections feature the work of Michelangelo, Turner, and Van Eyck. Each portfolio includes
- Eight beautiful 8.5″ x 11″ full-color art prints to choose from, printed on coated card stock (Extra prints are available for groups.);
- A picture of the artist and a short, living biography about him to help your child form a relation with that artist;
- Step-by-step instructions to remind you how to do picture study;
- Charlotte Mason’s thoughts on picture study to inspire you;
- Leading thoughts for each picture to enhance your discussions;
- A storage portfolio, printed on heavy card stock with a closable flap, to keep everything organized.
