Imperfect Fine Art 4-Part Cards
These are just like our first quality cards except there is a slight production error that made us judge it as second quality. The error may be that the colors are slightly off, the images slightly askew, a spot or small hair in the laminate on one or more cards, and/or a slight curve to the laminate. Often the error is only on one card and customers can't find it (but we can)! Other than that, these are perfect and complete. Our production error means big savings for you!
These cards challenge your art lovers to match famous pieces of art with their name and artist. The breathtaking art in this collection includes fine art from Europe, America, and around the world. The four-part format includes the name of the art as well as the name of the artist. These are not just for children! Challenge yourself or any art lover you know to complete this reading/matching activity.

The Fine Art Series
- We recommend introducing fine art with our Fine Art Display Cards. Use those larger format cards to explore the details of each piece of art and learn about the year it was made, the artist, and the art's style.
- Then, move on to our Fine Art Matching cards. These allow children to work with the artwork they love in a new way.
- When the children begin to write, inspire them to write about their favorite art using the movable alphabet, chalkboards, or pencil/paper (whatever is appropriate for that child).
- Once the children are reading non-phonetic words, introduce the 3-Part Fine Art Cards. Then, move on with the 3-Part Artist Cards where they match the names of the artists with their image.
- Finally, after the children succeed with the 3-part Fine Art cards, introduce these Fine Art 4-Part Cards where they match the artwork, its name, and its artists. This is an activity that truly grows with your children!
