Discovering Great Artists {Read for Free}

We frequently recommend Discovering Great Artists: Hands-On Art for Children in the Styles of the Great Masters by MaryAnn F. Kohl and Kim Solga. This versatile title can be used as the basis for designing your own art program or as a supplemental resource to complement any other art program you might use. Discovering Great Artists is currently free to use as part of Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited Program.

Winner of a Practical Homeschooling Reader Award, Discovering Great Artists contains over 150 hands-on activities based on the styles of great artists. Lessons are designated as easy/beginner, moderate/intermediate, and involved/experienced to help you choose those that will fit your family. The lessons are also designated by the style and/or era (abstract, impressionism, Renaissance).

But the most helpful feature of the book is the chart in the front that lists the artists in chronological order along with their style of art, the type and level of the associated activity, and prep time.

Being a family of readers, we have put our Kindle Unlimited subscription to great use over the years and found Kindle Unlimited a great way to save on books we really want to read — or to try before we buy. If you have never tried Kindle Unlimited before, you can sign up for a free trial. (Don’t have a Kindle? No problem!) Books come and go from the Kindle Unlimited program all of the time, so be on the lookout for your other favorites! (See the resources below for other great titles currently in the program.)

Great chance to work through a favorite title — free!
