If you loved my Art Lessons by Artist then I think you will love my Art Around the Ancient World lessons too! Follow our homeschool for a trip around the Ancient World. I’ll be touching on Ancient art, history, literature and -last but not least- art project tutorials. This is a unique way to learn about art in history as well as history in general and adds a creative side to exploring the Ancient World and way of life.
Art Around the Ancient World:
I can’t wait to share with you my new art lessons designed to enhance study of 12 civilizations covering Prehistory to the Fall of Rome. That’s 6000 BC to 400 AD! The art course will complement any Ancient History Curriculum. This year we are using The Story of the World: Vol 1-text only, The Story of the Ancient World by Christine Miller, and Augustus Caesar’s World by Genevieve Foster plus a wonderful Ancient History Booklist of several living books and historical novels to complement each civilization studied. It’s my hope that you will follow along with me making your own creations inspired by Ancient art.

The following lists each lesson by civilization, what each lesson’s focus will be, and the media/project tutorial. (These are subject to change.)
