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. Ages 3 - 9.
Set includes: How to Use Child-Size Masterpieces for Art Appreciation (A108) and Child-Size Masterpieces Art Collections, Steps 1, 2, & 3 (A109, A110, A111).
The How to Use... book is a 72-page guide used to implement this program.
Each of the art collection books contains postcard-size images of paintings from all periods of art history. Chosen to appeal to young children, each reproduction is color-coded and imprinted on back with title/artist. Use any of these collection books for for step 1 (matching identical paintings), step 2 (pairing companion paintings), and step 3 (grouping four paintings by one artist). Differences and similarities are easiest to see in Level 1, and become increasingly challenging in successive levels.
Each postcard book contains 36 reproductions. To make cards, cut out the 4¾" x 6½" images and laminate, if desired.
