"Art Appreciation for Grades 3-4" - Art with Joymarie


This middle elementary art appreciation course uses 36 wholesome and innocent paintings with enjoyable, kid-friendly themes to introduce kids to fine art and art concepts. Some lessons are just discussion questions about the painting.

Other lessons include coloring outlines for kids to color that match the paintings, creative writing story starters, fascinating artist biographies that read like stories, a painting scavenger hunt, poetry, easy painting assignments, detecting what is different between 2 similar paintings, and a painting scavenger hunt.

This course also teaches kids art concepts and the art terms that define them. Everything you need to teach each concept is included in the lesson in an easy to understand format. All you have to do is read the lesson and have your child follow simple instructions.

For example, we talk about lighter and darker areas in a painting to teach the term “values” simply by asking the child which objects are darker and which are lighter. We do this with many other principles like cool colors and warm colors, facial expressions, relationships, mood and feelings, shadows, action, reflection, color saturation, and transparency.

We make these lessons short and easy to teach. All you have to do is ask the questions we provide. Your child can either answer them orally, or on paper if you prefer.

The lessons are divided into 5 units, featuring 4 main artists with a unit for each one, plus a unit on flower paintings with several different artists. At the end of the course we have a final test so you can give your child a grade for the course.

This book is reproducible for all students living in the same home as the book’s owner.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
