The Studio Art: Inspired by Art History course was just released!
Since publishing The Master and His Apprentices: Art History from a Christian Perspective, many schools and homeschool families have asked for a companion art book that merges art history with studio art projects.
After seeing the need for an affordable, flexible, multi-level, foundation-based studio art program, Gina designed Studio Art: Inspired by Art History. This new full-credit art course covers drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, digital art, and more.
In addition to instructions for parents and teachers, a “Time Log” helps students record the hours they spend working on exercises and projects. A high school credit of .25 (for 30 hours) to 1.0 credit (for 120+ hours) can then be given. However, younger students and adults can also benefit from the material (i.e., great for the whole family!)
The course begins with 10 FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES like value, lighting, color, and perspective. These first provide students with the understanding and skills needed to create any great work of art. Then, 30 PROJECTS further introduce students to various mediums, styles, and approaches, each supported with additional examples from art history.
As of today, you can purchase the softcover and digital Studio Art: Inspired by Art History books through TheMasterAndHisApprentices.com. In the coming weeks, you will be able to buy the course through additional retailers as well. As always, we pray this resource is a wonderful blessing to your school or family!
