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

  1. SanAntonioBusco

    This school year we are studying Pieter Breugel , Gustave Courbet and J.M.W.Turner, so I decided to try these art portfolios. I order the portfolio of Turner. I noticed immediately the quality. I printed my art paintings at office depot, etc.. I get always a disappointment for the lack of light and truthfulness of the pictures. I don’t see Breugel or Courbet portfolios, 🙁 I wish I could order for this school year. For the school year 2020-2021 we are studying Rembrant, ‘Titian and Davinci. I will order here. Thanks!

    I am sorry I did not express myself correctly above. I just wanted to say that these portfolios have very good quality and If found the artist I am looking for here, I will never try to print on my own. The pictures came very very nice!! thanks
