Make art appreciation simple and beautiful!

Everything you need to successfully do picture study is in this easy-to-use portfolio. Just one 15-minute lesson once a week is all it takes to spread this feast and cultivate within your children an appreciation for what is just, true, and beautiful.

“We cannot measure the influence that one or another artist has upon the child’s sense of beauty, upon his power of seeing, as in a picture, the common sights of life; he is enriched more than we know in having really looked at even a single picture.”—Charlotte Mason

    I am happy you added Tanner to your portfolios! We studied him last school year and absolutely loved his work. I just recently discovered this artist and am so glad I did.

  2. Anna

    We chose this as our first taste of picture study. Couldn’t be happier! We did picture study on Saturday so my husband could join in and even in just a few weeks our joy and appreciation of art has grown. I’m so excited to continue with these portfolios.
