Art Study: Alfredo Rodriguez

Pleasant Moments by Alfredo Rodriguez see
 I have oft written about God being the greatest artist and being made in His image means we are designed to and have opportunity to reflect some of His creative beauty. Well some supass us all, and one such person is  Alfredo Rodriguez !  

One of the things I have always loved about Charlotte Mason Educational Philosophy is the emphasis on doing art and studying art history. It is one of the wonderful luxuries God gives us with life in all it's fullness. And with the Internet it is no longer a luxury for the rich only. When Jessica was little we saved every cent to afford to buy her art post cards and later artist's books. Now it is a matter of one click to google and you can find any artist anywhere from any age! 

The study of art history and artists is a oft neglected past time in this day and age. Why not revive it in your family? 

School today - groan? No, "Yay!" Look what we started with. Take a look at this wonderful Christian artist and his magnificant work! We will study his biography, look at his work, try to copy his work etc this term. He is is going to be 'our artist', our inspiration this term...
