We are using World’s Greatest Artists, a study compiled by Erica at Confessions of a Homeschooler this year for our Fine Arts Fridays curriculum. Last year, we studied composers on Fine Arts Fridays, but decided to delve into the world of art in a different way this year. Rather than focusing our attention on the basics of drawing, we’re actually attempting to try several different styles based on the artists we study. Picasso was first! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the biographies and lapbooks we put together, but of course the painting is what the kids are always thrilled to do.
