Teaching art appreciation in your homeschool

It has been a while since my last post, and I found this free program from that I just had to share. I hear a lot of moms say that they feel like they can't teach art, that they feel completely unqualified. I understand that feeling (although in different areas). This curriculum that I found will help you teach principals and techniques that famous artists used and also give them a bit of world history and geography as well. You can create a mini timeline to see when the art was created, as well as provide a world map and help your children find where all the artists were from, and where they ended up. Did I mention it was FREE?? That's always a good thing in my books!

This curriculum teaches:

- about each piece of art, the artist, and what techniques the artist used.

-elements of art

-periods of art

-color theory

-principals of design

-art terms

-provides a recommended reading list

You can find this free download HERE.
