Artist Studies

In our homeschool we follow a cross between Classical and Charlotte Mason philosophies.  With Little Man, I’m looking to add some Waldorf and Montessori components as well.

My favorite curriculum is Ages of Grace.  The author (Seamless) has started the model for us and many are in the process of adding bits and pieces for others to use.  My humble contribution consists simply of the pdf files I created for our continuing artist studies.

Age of Captivity – Renaissance

El Greco
Da Vinci

Age of Monastacism – 1700s and 1800s

To see even more people’s contributions please go to the Ages of Grace wiki.

  1. Thanks for the contribution! My family is in the Age of Apostles and waiting with bated breath as the Ages Wiki fills out. We have lightly studied the art of the ancient peoples as we have arrived at them the last two years, as well as simply hanging up a piece to gaze at each week that goes along with my preschoolers’ “letter of the week” curriculum. Next year I will be starting studying 2 artists each term. These are the picks I came up with. I hope they are a help to you or one of your readers.
