Low Cost Art Curriculum: Dover Art Products

Printer Friendly Version

By EHO Staff

Most homeschoolers know all about Dover coloring books. They're the perfect accompaniment to nearly any science or social studies unit because there's a coloring book for nearly any topic you can imagine. Dover has many other products that are both high quality and low cost. If you haven't explored Dover's art products, it's time you learned a little more.

Art Instruction
Dover's art instruction books are adult level books. They are often for beginners, so high school age students ought to be able to get a lot out of those books that interest them. Topics cover painting, drawing and sculpture, as well as books on design, use of color, and perspective.

Dover Fine Art Post Cards
Dover offers fine art reproductions in post card size in two formats, a 24 card book and a 6 card book. Each format includes a number of different artists. The cards may be mailed or used in your own art history curriculum. A collection could be mounted on a wall. At just $1.50 for six or $5.95 for 24 these cards are an excellent bargain.
Dover Fine Art Stickers
Dover offers sets of fine art stickers for a number of different artists from Michelangelo to Mary Cassatt. Each Dover fine art sticker book has 16 stickers. The stickers are approximately 1 3/4" x 2 3/4" in size and are excellent reproductions of the selected artists artwork.

Color Your Own Masterpieces
Well, we're back to coloring books, but these are coloring books with a difference. They include reproductions of famous artists' works in a black and white outline format that allows children to choose the colors they will use to color them. To the right is a sample from the Color Your Own Mary Cassatt Masterpieces book. As children color these pages, they have the added benefit of seeing the lines that the artist might have started with before painting the picture. You can use these pictures with tracing paper for a lesson in drawing.
