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. Kimberly

    I had been wanting to do some kind of art appreciation or picture study, but didn’t know where to start. Having been impressed with the “Stuff They Left Behind” portfolio I had recently ordered, I decided to give the “Picture Study Portfolio” a try and picked Van Gogh to start with. What a wonderful resource this is–and all in one beautiful packet! The prints were beautiful and the included booklet had great info on each piece along with background info about Van Gogh’s life. We also utilized the suggested reading list and checked out one of the books on Van Gogh from the library and read it as a family. My kids (and I!) enjoyed interacting with this artist and his artwork and I’m looking forward to ordering more portfolios! Thank you for making this so easy!
