God and the History of Art comes with a set of beautiful full-color postcard size reproductions of famous art prints. These are used in a number of ways to teach students to look more closely at art. The program is recommended for age 10+ but younger children can often use it with help. Our 8 year-old Sonja studied the Mona Lisa one day in art. Unknown to me, in her free time that afternoon, she decided to sketch it. The next day, a gorgeous Mona Lisa reproduction, complete with mysterious smile, was posted on our fridge.
Rather than focusing on three artists a year, this program is linked to history. When you study Egypt in history, you are learning about and doing Egyptian style art. When you study Greece, you learn about Greek vases. etc.
What a treasure! A four-year art history program with easy-to teach art lessons from a Christian perspective. The 250 lessons will be integrated with all four of our history years, and lessons are even scheduled for you in our lesson plans. Each lesson includes art history information as well as a drawing or painting lesson.
