These art cards are great for art appreciation and artist studies. They are very open ended, you can do lots of different things with them. My kids had fun looking through them and would often point out things in different pictures, they would talk about ones they liked or didn’t like and why.
We would try to sort them by artist based on similarities in the style of art. We used them in conjunction with another art program. We would find art pieces that resembled real life or showed imagination.
I found this great set of FREE art question cards that I downloaded and put on a ring.
Other things you can do are:
Have your child pick a piece of art they wish to duplicate.
Look for artist color pages that match or are by the same artist to color.
Pick favorite pieces and learn about the artist.
Purchase multiple sets and use them for matching.

These are made of a thicker paper, but, I would suggest laminating them for use with younger children to to make them more durable.
