I have been having a lot of fun putting together these artist studies for my children. I never realized before that there are SO many free resources out there – all you have to do is search! I have assembled another compilation of resources for a Charlotte Mason-style artist study. This time we’re focusing on the well-known artist Vincent Van Gogh. I hope you find these resources helpful in your homeschool!
