An Introduction to Art History -
A Classical Approach to Art History
is designed to be a first art history course for anyone desiring to add some art appreciation to their home or Christian school. All ages can learn together in these 30 minute sessions which connect other subject areas to the fine arts.
Classical educators will especially love this first text in a series, which introduces Rembrandt, Carl Linneaus, and Edgar Degas to the student, along with delightful art lessons.
Included are colorful works by each artist, along with "Art Lesson Cards" for the art lessons. Students cut and paste "Masterpieces" into an "Art Gallery" and add their own art exercises, creating a delightful portfolio by the end of the course. Ages 6 & Up.
There are 36 brief art history lessons, 36 art lessons, and 2 quizzes. They are divided into 12 days of lessons for each artist, combining factual information about the person's life with a brief art lesson to complete.
This course is copyrighted and allowed to be used by one homeschool, but is also suitable for homeschool group meetings or classrooms.
