I miss our Artist Study. Mavi enjoyed our Artist Study sessions. This was when there was no Vito yet and when my hands are not full :) Mavi is very much intrigued on the lives of some greatest artists, he loves to listen to their life stories and the paintings that they made. I have attempted this a million times, to reboot this lessons but the baby is a big factor. We’ll just have to set this aside and revisit this once Vito can join us.
Now I made this post to introduce two sets of books that Mavi and I really really love and enjoyed reading. I found these in our library… but of course they don’t have the complete set which I dream of owning someday. They are for keeps :)
The first set of the books are from James Mayhew. The books are all about Katie, who loves to visit museums with her grandma and when no one is watching, the paintings come alive. My son loves this idea of Katie going inside the painting and meeting the characters on it. We’ve read some of it and here are our favourites arranged according to how much we like them.
The second set of books that we also love are from Laurence Anholt. This time the stories are all about children meeting great artists. The books are more focused on the artist’s life rather than the paintings they’re made. Now these books are pretty popular in the library so they are seldom available. I plan to purchase them as gifts later on. As I said, these books are worth-it.
Books we’ve read from the series:
