These studies of Famous Paintings
were written on an elementary level, but will be of interest to all ages.
They will help students become familiar with
and learn to appreciate the works of famous artists.

Teachers, for each lesson you will find a biography of the artist,
a study sheet, a worksheet, a greyscale print of the picture,
a jigsaw puzzle, a printable and online crossword puzzle, word search, and word scramble,
links for further research, and links to art lessons for many of the artists.

There are posters, books, and videos you can order.

All the material at Garden of Praise is free without subscription.
