*Most of my lesson plans include printable images of the artist’s work within the lesson plan. However, since Andrew Wyeth’s art work is still under copyright, I can not include them in this product. You can easily follow the links provided where you will find printable images of his art.

This lesson is also available at a discount in the “Amazing American Artists Deluxe Package” which includes 6 lesson plans, plus extras, and is ideal for weeks 13-18 of Fine Arts in a cycle 3 Classical Conversations Foundations community.
