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.
It’s that time of year again! Today I’m offering the 2022-2023 AmblesideOnline Picture Study art print files for download! Each free (and no strings attached) PDF includes printable versions of six (or seven) paintings from each artist, taken from the AmblesideOnline Artist Study rotation. This year contains one of my favorites, Vincent van Gogh, as well as Raphael and John Singer Sargent. The Raphael selections do include nudity, but there are alternative suggestions on the AmblesideOnline list, which I have also included in the file.
Beneath each image is the title, artist name, and the 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):
As always, I did try to find the highest resolution images I could on the internet, which sometimes proves to be problematic. I have found that there is 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.
I am also announcing that I will only be offering one free Picture Study Aid per year from now on. As much as I have loved making them available to the homeschooling community at no charge the last five years, these Picture Study Aids not only take a lot of time to write, but I also get quite a few emails about them that take time to answer as well. As my kids have gotten older and other responsibilities are popping up in my days, I have found that I need to be more intentional with my time. Of course, I will continue offering these printable art files at no charge or any strings attached as long as I am amble. With that said, this year’s free Picture Study Aid will be John Singer Sargent, and I hope to have that available for download this summer.
If you have any questions, please let me know!
