Art History can be addictive. LOL!


We read just about anything and everything. I think that in our case we reach most of our subjects through books. This book kept them busy for a long time yesterday. They were really into it.

Art Up Close by Claire d'Harcourt is a Book that helps children explore famous art pieces in history. It titles them by name, artist and year. There are circles with parts of the picture featured in each circle and the goal is to find where that piece is in the picture. It's a bit like "Finding Waldo" but with famous masterpieces throughout time.

One warning: For sensitive children some of the graphics may be too graphic.
