Great Artists

We're a part of a Classical Conversation community, have been for many years.  Each year, the Foundations students study a few great artists and imitate their techniques or works.  We've got some great keepsakes because of the projects they have brought home from community day.  As the years go by, I collect art books of each artist they study from the local library sales.  And each week of Foundations, as they study a different artist, I will pull that artist's books down and put them out on the coffee table.  The books are sitting in such a prominent place, they are never ignored.  The kids pull them out and look and discuss them constantly.  Looking at great art serves to train their souls and appetites in beauty, communicates compelling ideas, and ignites and inspires their imaginations to reproduce the beauty they see.
