Art prints

Art prints

For another filler thread and since I’m curious, where do upyou get the prints you hang for art, miss mayberry? That’s so cool your kids recognize the music and art in other situations!

re: Art prints

I've ordered from art.com Just don't ever pay full price. They offer coupons for 40-50% off frequently. I have this one in my kitchen. The small print is not the artist's name, it reads "Serves Five Thousand."

Another favorite that I have ordered:

For art study, we have used this Page a Day calendar. Parents should review all images in case some may not be suitable for your family. I usually only had 2 or 3 that I would not use.

re: Art prints

The time we did Norman Rockwell, I had some old calendar pages that I laminated.

I have printed off and laminated from cottagepress.net.

The Millet ones were from Simply Charlotte Mason.com. I liked them ok, but they are pretty pricey.

I have also done a period of "famous historical photos". (Think Rosa Parks booking photo, John John's salute, wright Brothers flight, etc). Those I just copied black and white from the internet, cut out with a little photograph sort of white margin and laminated. That was a real hit.

I am always on the lookout for art books at thrift stores that I can use.

re: Art prints

We used postcard sized prints included in God and History of Art (How Great Thou Art, Barry Stebbing)

and then some stuff was part of the language arts stuff we used (a CM approach) with the books in mfw stuff. Even with PLL and ILL (Serl language lessons books) if it was in black and white, we'd just search on 'net for color version and look at it.


Back when I went to my first hs convention (was that this century? or last ?) there was some company selling sets of art reprints. david quine, cornerstone? something like that. but they sold reprint galleries and encouraged a CM approach on it. I never bought them from them though. oh wow. they don't sell them anymore. everything shows as unavailable, damaged and missing. oh well. so much for that idea.
