Have you always wanted to take an art appreciation class but didn’t know where or how to begin?
Whether you are 25 or 95 years old — this book is for YOU!


Textbook 2-page spread showing the Limbourg BrothersThe definition of art appreciation generally encompasses an understanding of the timeless qualities that make great art, well, great. Ordinarily, an art appreciation course will cover a number of different art periods, styles, mediums and techniques.

The problem for Christians is that these same courses often approach the topic from a secular, humanistic perspective. They do not view God as the original, ultimate Creator.  They do not make fascinating connections between art, artists and the biblical timeline. Most importantly, they do not present Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection (a large percentage of art through the ages) as truth. Rather, they present Jesus as a mythological-type character right alongside Zeus, Hades and Athena Nike.


Why settle for second best when there is SO much more to art appreciation?
