~Art Appreciation~ 

Art Appreciation lessons can be started with very young children.  They can be as simple as displaying beautiful artwork around your home.  Start with your favorite artists and share them with your children.  Talk about what you see in a painting and ask your children to tell you what they really like about it.  Art can enrich our lives as much as music and great literature.   ~Katrina Lybbert~
