And I’m departing from the traditional Charlotte Mason method of one artist per term. Instead, we’re looking at a variety of artists who painted the West.
Our first artist is George Catlin. Our art book had only 10 Catlin works, so it was a quick three week study. (We narrate a piece daily instead of weekly.)
