Art Step 5 Materials

(The children learn the names of a few very significant paintings that are widely known by their titles. There are identical pairs of cards with one set (the control cards ) which bears the name of the painting and the name of the artist. The second set is blank but has a loose label bearing the name of the painting and the name of the artist.)

  • To Match the Cards
  • Visual discrimination
  • Concentration
  • Appreciation of great art
  1. Remove the control cards from the level 5. These are kept in the left-hand folder.
  2. Lay the first set out in a vertical or horizontal row.
  3. The second set of cards and labels are kept in the right hand side pocket.
  4. Begin with a folder from an artist that you have previously spoken about.
  5. Place the control cards in a vertical row saying each artist’s name out aloud as well as the name of the painting, as you handle each painting.
  6. Remove the second set and place each one besides the identical painting.
  7. Remove the name cards and select each artist’s name and the name of the painting, by consulting the control set. Place each name card below the painting.
  8. When the layout is complete, point out to the child that each pair of paintings and names are identical.
  9. Invite the child to have a turn.
CONTROL OF ERROR The cards are not matched
