John Constable-Anyone Can Do Picture Study!

John Constable Artist Study @harmonyfinearts

If you are using the classical method of homeschooling or if you are a Charlotte Mason family, you can use these links to study an artist that not many have heard of in their travels through life. I came to appreciate his art last year when I was researching materials for my Harmony Fine Arts program. He lived from 1776-1837 so he fits in with the third cycle of history for classically schooled children.

Short Biography

It’s as easy as that.

  • You can have your children view the artwork online and then narrate back what they see.
  • Read the biography and then write a short one paragraph summary for their notebook.
  • Print out the portrait for your timeline.
  • Make sure to have your child describe the clouds in each painting because they are all so different and beautiful in their own way.

Give it a try. I will be adding different artists and composers throughout the school year for you to enjoy.

John Constable is included in depth in the Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 art plans.
