Tuesday's Treasures {19}

This week ...

This week has been a rather busy one and as a result Tuesday's Treasures is a day late my apologies. This morning my order from The Book Depository arrived.  I confess I am impressed.

I was over at Confessions of a Homeschooler and Erica has put together a unit study titled: The World's Greatest Artists Vol 1 (and the best part is it's FREE). I have been watching her children's adventures and thought that Sir N might enjoy doing some of those things. I downloaded the FREE instructors guide which contains: Lesson plans for each, week Lap Book printables, Artist Notebooking page, Art Puzzles and Artist Flashcards.

All I had to do was invest in the source books which were AU$6-75 each including postage.  The source books are from the series: Getting to Know the worlds Greatest Artists by Mike Venezia. Six of the eight books arrived in the mail today and I spent a while looking through them and I confess I am impressed.  One or two of the pictures I don't want to show Sir N but I will simply cover them with a sheet of paper, however the information about the artist and their style is excellent.  What I know about the art community and art appreciation is minimal so I will be learning alongside Sir N on this journey.

The eight artist you will meet in the series are:

The books are available from Amazon where you can take a sneak peak inside each one as well as from The Book Depository.

To see the study in action take a look at what Erica and her family have done so far:

I shall be starting this adventure with Sir N next week.

What have you been using for art and the study of artists ?


 Welcome to Tuesdays Treasures.  I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!

There are so many wonderful books out there hiding on shelves so I invite you to blog about a book on your shelf, one you're reading or one you found at the library and add your post in the linky below.
