Art Appreciation using Meet the Masters

We recently started our Art Appreciation studies and the whole family (including Dad) is loving it! We’re using Meet the Masters program as our base and studying one artist per month, and doing extra readings/projects to complement the MTM units. Meet the Masters is an online art appreciation program that is designed for ages 5 to adult and currently has over 20 Artist Units available for homeschools, with plans for 35 artists total.

I’ve listed these artists in order of the Meet the Master program, as well as book links to some great books that we love to learn more about the artists.
