Winslow Homer was one of America’s greatest artists…a painter of New England and the islands of Florida, of the sea and the Eastern mountain wilderness, of children and animals. He was one of the first artists to take watercolor seriously, and created masterful paintings. In this KidsArt booklet on the art and times of Homer you’ll find hands-on projects and art history on:
- Homer’s life and career
- The American Civil War
- The life of Americans, especially children, at the turn of the last century
- Painting watercolors
- Seascapes, sailing ships…and lots more
KidsArt art teaching booklets bring you 16 reproducible pages of hands-on art activities. The projects are simple, innovative and easy to use in home or classroom settings. Because the activities are open-ended, teaching the process rather than a specific product or end result, they can be used with many different ages and stages of development, from preschool through middle school.
