Carol Reynolds Portrait

Art appreciation is a necessary and joyful component of a classical education. To this end, Memoria Press has created publications on art for both younger and older students. Among these are three series of Art Cards designed for use in kindergarten through second grade, as well as other pedagogical titles.  

Still, how does one implement such materials? What should the students be gleaning and at what ages? What approaches aid a teacher in transmitting the content and significance of artistic masterpieces and their influence in Western culture?  Most importantly, what helps to develop an understanding and love of art in a child? 

In this five-week course, Carol Reynolds will take participants through these materials, focusing particularly on the Art Cards. She will make broad sweeps through Western art history and suggest a multiplicity of specific approaches to help bring art to life.
