Artist of the Month

Each month we pick a new artist, as well as a new composer, to study. We studied Monet and Tchaikovsky in the fall, before our move. We haven't done one since. I am excited to get back to this. We keep it casual. We pick out books, DVD's,and CD's from the library. We try to do a little each day.

This month we are studying Mary Cassatt. Some of the items we have found so far are:

Mary Cassatt: An American in Paris by Philip Brooks

Mary Cassatt: Oils and Pastels by E. John Bullard

Mary Cassatt (Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists)

Just casual immersion into the works of our artist/composer of the month. It almost feels like cheating on school because it doesn't even feel like work. Love it!
