Product Description:

A wonderful, early introduction to art appreciation and artist recognition from Renaissance to modern art. (This second edition updates the cover only.) Based on Montessori principles, even the smallest child can perform the simplest activity: matching paintings. As they become more familiar with each artist's style, they learn to classify several different paintings by artist. Later, students learn to classify artists' works according to the various "schools" of art. Manual describes eight progressively more difficult steps or levels of activities as follows:

Step 1 - Matching identical paintings

Step 2 - Pairing two similar paintings by the

same artist

Step 3 - Grouping four paintings by each of

three artists

Step 4 - Learning the names of famous

artists

Step 5 - Learning the names of famous

paintings

Step 6 - Learning about the schools of art

Step 7 - Sorting schools of art

Step 8 - Placing paintings on a time line

Publisher Description:

Now standard in Montessori classrooms nationwide, Aline Wolf's program for Primary through Elementary-age children makes teaching art appreciation easy.

Beginning with matching activities, the exercises gradually increase in difficulty, progressing from sorting activities to laying out a time line.

The full program, outlined in this book, explains the sequential introduction of the postcard-size art reproductions you'll use to implement this program and introduce children to the world of art. Paperback, 72 pages. Ages 3 - 9.

Category Description for Child-Sized Masterpieces:

Art postcard books for above. Cards are excellent reproductions of paintings.

The Child-Sized Masterpieces or as it is sometimes known Mommy It's a Renoir is a super product I'm glad I bought several of the sets of postcards since a child can go through one set fairly quickly The easiest levels of matching are simple to almost all children over 3 yo Be aware that the postcards are good quality on thick cardstock and must be cut out with an exacto knife So if you order a lot of the sets as I did the initial set-up can take hours
