Looking for advice. My youngest is on the autism spectrum, and has a great memory. She has an 8th grade art class with a great teacher, and does some good creative projects. Trouble is, given her abilities and challenges, she often finishes projects much faster than her classmates.
Stealth brag but germane. The art teacher showed a painting to the class and asked if anyone recognized the work? Serena chimed in that it was a Mickaline Thomas painting - and nailed it. Sheesh, I can barely tell a Picasso from a Monet. (Serea also knows all 50 states and capitals, can recognize most countries on a global map, etc)
Anyhoo, looking for recommendations for flash cards or a good art book that covers something like the 500 “most famous” works of art thru history. Something that Serena can recognize, know the artist, know the era and genre and other fun facts. I’d like to put Serena’s memorization skills to good use in the art world. Any recommendations based on experience is welcome.
