Please note that I have been given AmblesideOnline’s permission to use their name in the title and body of this post as well as their permission to use their Artist Study rotation to make these files.
This is just about the time of year when homeschooling families begin making plans for the following school year, so today I wanted to let you know that the 2021-2022 AmblesideOnline Picture Study print files are now available for download! Each free (and no strings attached!) PDF includes printable versions of the six paintings, chosen from the AmblesideOnline Artist Study rotation. This year includes two of my favorite artists: Jan van Eyck (whom my co-op studied earlier this school year) and Caspar David Friedrich, as well as Sandro Botticelli. For van Eyck and Botticelli, there are a few paintings that include nudity or violent subject matter and there are alternative suggestions on the AmblesideOnline list which I have also included in those files.
Beneath each image is the title, artist name, and date it was painted as well as permission to print it at your local copy shop for personal use. You can find the files here or on the Picture Study Resources page:
You can find all of the other free picture study print files and any free Picture Study Aids I offer here! I do also hope to release free Picture Study Aids for each of these artists as well later this year.
As always, I did try to find the highest resolution images I could on the internet, which sometimes proves to be problematic. It’s also a delicate balance of providing high-quality images while maintaining a relatively small file size. If you do have questions about printing the files, I have a few tips and suggestions here for how to print your picture studies at home, have them printed at an office supply store, or purchase prints from an online supplier if that would be helpful!
Feel free to download the files for use in your own homeschool!
