I would really like to have a bunch of pictures in a book to do picture study with. Any suggestions? We do have some Come Look With Me books and I don’t really like them…I think it’s because I don’t really like many of the pictures in them.HollySParticipant
I got one book to try with DD, but I didn’t care for it either. Have you looked into the SCM picture studies? We haven’t used these yet, but they look really good.2Corin57Participant
Memoria Press also offers some through their Enrichment Guides, which also include poetry study.alphabetikaParticipant
If you don’t mind having a curriculum attached to the pictures, you could look at Artistic Pursuits. It’s a combination of picture study, art history, and technique. I have really liked using it with my kids, though the methodology is different than CM because you are looking at a different picture each lesson, so potentially a new picture each week rather than doing one artist per term.Wings2flyParticipant
My kids loved DK A Child’s Book of Art Discover Great Paintings by Lucy Micklethwait.
Also a series called What Makes a Masterpiece: Cats in Art, Flowers in Art, etc.MissusLeataParticipant
I buy books with pictures by one artist and used book sales. They work great!totheskydearParticipant
I just go onto Amazon and look up “(artist name) print book” and buy those. Always go for the used copies–sometimes you can find them on Amazon for a penny plus shipping! 🙂
There are also these postcard packs from Dover:beccawalker2000Participant
I just purchased some of the artist sets from SCM, but only because we happened to have a little extra left over in the hs budget. I don’t know if I’ll be able to do that every year, so these resources are great ideas!marmiemamaParticipant
I have the Giotto SCM study that we like very much. Something else I did was go through my old Queen Homeschool language arts books (we had a lot of them a few years back); I ripped out all the art pages along with the narration prompts, placed them in sheet protectors and then in a binder. We’ve got a nice collection of beautiful paintings. I also have lots of artist collections from amazon. I believe they were free for a day. They’re $.99 now. Still a bargain!GraceParticipant
We use my father’s world language lessons for today which has picture study, poems, copywork, short stories for narration, and simple grammar
