A is for Art and Artist Study Resources

We are super excited about our core art curriculum this year. We are using Artistic Pursuits Book 2. She has completed several oil pastel projects. Click on the link provided to read my review. This time while in the great outdoors, she decided that she wanted to draw our car. Here are a few photos of her art work.

I love to supplement with notebooking, timelines, lapbooking, and other resources. I wanted to share my list of favorite art and artist study resources with you. As with any art material, please view all art works to see if they will be appropriate for your child.
