have read many great books about artists, carried out artist studies
complete with copied works, and go on field trips to local art museums.
I always wanted my boys to really stop and study the works of art.
Look for the nuances that make them so spectacular, learn the names of
major works of art and the artists who painted them.
was so thrilled when I stumbled upon the Spot the Differences book! So
far we only have book 1 but there are 4 of them in the series.
book has 25 famous paintings– each painting is pictured twice. The
first page shows the original painting complete with name and date it
was painted. The opposing page shows the same picture with anywhere
from 6-14 change and you are challenged to find all the differences
between the original work of art and the changed picture. There is an
answer key in the back of the book if you get stumped and a handy box
for checking off all the differences you have found.
both pictures are snippets of information about the artist, the
painting itself, and some facts about the historical period in which the
artist lived and painted.
