Why teach art appreciation?

The most fundamental answer is that the experience of beauty in art helps to form the mind and heart for the pursuit of truth and goodness. As Prof. John Crosby has said, “the child who is raised to respond to the beautiful is thereby sensitized to all that is good and right and worthy.” Taking time to expose our children to great art gives them the opportunity “to contemplate the ray of beauty that strikes us to the quick, that almost ‘wounds’ us, and that invites us to rise toward God” (Benedict XVI).

“The Art Masterpieces Collections are my absolute favorite. I have not found anything else like these and I want to thank you for creating such a wonderful collection of classical art pieces. I love that the Art Prints are a large enough size to display around our home, even just for fun! They are high quality printings on sturdy paper, I love the way the lessons have the students search for matching prints done by the same artist so that they get an eye for style. I love these so much, I shared the link to several friends. Some of which are most definitely NOT Catholic but even they appreciated the quality of the material so much, that they said they would purchase a set for their children as well.”
