Since begining to home educate I have become more acutely aware of the fine arts.  I'm aware that there are many beautiful famous paintings out there but my knowledge of teaching the fine arts is very limited.  It was with delight I discovered this great book at our local library last week.

Each double page spread features a picture of a famous painting along with a short historical description. The thing that caught my eye are the arrows to parts of the paintings pointing out things to take note of or giving short interesting bits of information.

We are enjoying this book and it fits in well with the short lesson periods suggested by Charlotte Mason.

 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 to the Link Up below

  1. Throughout the Center Ages, the term “artista” known anything resembling “builder," or scholar of the arts. The initial section in to "significant" and "slight" arts appointments back once again to the 1400s with the task of Leon Battista Alberti, which dedicated to the significance of the rational abilities of the famous modern artists rather compared to the information abilities of a craftsman. The Western academies of the 16th century officially solidified the distance involving the great and the used arts, which exists in different levels to the day. In most cases, the used arts use style and beauty to things of daily use, whilst the great arts offer as rational stimulation.contemporary artists
