We have started taking Thursdays to study Art, Classical Musical and Poetry. We try to have a nice relaxing day and just really dive into our readings and music.
Penny Gardner's Charlotte Mason Art Appreciation Page
I just had to update on our Art Study. We are going to start using a more Charlotte Mason type of approach. I plan to start with having them look at the picture for a few minutes. Then I will take it away and have them describe it to me. I might just start with the Katie books, since I have them already.
