Harmony Fine Arts Summer Art Show Printables @harmonyfinearts

From the Archives:

I have recently updated the Summer Art Show printable and I thought you might like to have it in your files to use with your family. It really doesn’t have much to do with summer art but rather we completed the activities during the summer of 2012. The theme of the art activities centers on the Impressionists which is applicable at any time of the year.

Here is a list of the entries that go along with the notebook pages:

I hope you enjoy taking a closer look at a few paintings with your family.

Teaching Art – Start With Observing Great Art

From My Archives!

At the beginning of each school year, it is helpful to equip yourself with as many teaching tools as you possibly can. For families that wish to study great art and artists, getting your child to participate in a picture study discussion can be a challenge especially if you have taken a break from it over the summer. I am sharing a printable tool from my archives that may help encourage your family to not only look at great art but to thoroughly enjoy it. I invite you to click over and read the original entry and download, save, and print out the art question cards for future reference.

Dover Art Cards-How To Use and Store Them

Dover Art Cards - Using them for picture study and storage ideas

Dover Art Cards are a wonderful resource when you are creating an artist study for your family. I love them so much that they are a part of several grade levels of the formal Harmony Fine Arts plans. The value of having art prints in full color even if they are postcard size is immeasurable for visual learners. Children can build their familiarity with lots of artists over time by viewing the style and manner in which each artist paints and uses colors. The Dover Art Cards are reasonably priced and each set has lots of postcard size prints to display, handle, and study.

You can read my basic tips forĀ  Dover Art Cards over on The Curriculum Choice.

If you are ready for more advanced picture study using Dover Art Cards, you could try using the printable Art Cards with questions for examining a print more closely.

Additional Ideas for Using Dover Art Cards

Identify Different Artists: With two sets from different artists on hand, take four from each set and mix them up. Place the cards on the table with the prints facing up. Now challenge your children to sort the cards by artist into two stacks. When they are finished, turn the cards over to see the labels and check their guesses.

Copywork: Use the art cards as the basis for a picture study copywork session. Have your child duplicate the painting as best they can using colored pencils.

Picture Study Using a Viewfinder: I shared this idea a long time ago but it is one you can adapt with Dover Art Cards. Create a viewfinder and place it over the card. Have your child duplicate what they see in the viewfinder using colored pencils.

How do we store our Dover Art Cards?

I store our Dover Art Cards sets in a photo box. I take apart the cards and organize them by artist, each with a file card with the name of the artist on the tab. Some of the sets are more general like Great Impressionist Art Cards .

We have a lot of cards and this keeps them organized in such a way that we can pull the box out, flip to the artist we are looking for, and then pull out the stack of cards.
