"For most of us, art education should consist of awakening the ability to appreciate, rather than the skill to create."

Hello and welcome to my winter art show. I would love to share some wintry art with you today. I recommend that you print out your favorite print and hang it up somewhere in your schoolroom, or maybe on your refrigerator. Just put it somewhere you can enjoy it and take a few minutes to look at it every day. I also like to make the piece of art I am studying my desktop background, that way every time I turn on my computer I can take a few seconds to enjoy it. When you look at the art with your children you might want to ask them some of the Looking at Art Questions. Hope you enjoy. Feel free to leave links in the comments to your favorite wintry artwork.
Katsushika Hokusai- Thunderstorm at the Foot of the Mountain
Alfred Sisley- Snow at Louveciennes
Paul Signac- Snow, Boulevard de Clichy, Paris
Pieter Bruegel- The Hunters in the Snow
Pieter Bruegel- Winter Landscape with a Bird Trap
All the prints, except for the Grandma Moses ones are from artchive. com. That is a great resource for looking at fine art.
And if you haven't seen my winter themed art, handicraft and nature study kit, which includes an art print of Signac's Snow, Boulevard de Clichy, Paris you can check it out here.
