Studio Art: Inspired by Art History
Studio Art: Inspired by Art History is a fun, flexible, multi-level, full-credit studio art course for high school students*. It covers drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, digital art, and more!
10 FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES (such as value, lighting, color, and perspective) first provide students with the understanding and skills needed to create any great work of art.
30 PROJECTS then further introduce students to a wide variety of mediums, styles, and approaches. Each is placed in its historical context so students learn from the Masters while simultaneously developing their own unique pieces.
The low-cost supply approach and easy-to-follow instructions make this course great for homeschool families and private schools alike. This is NOT a paint-by-number kind of course! Rather, students are first taught to apply sound artistic principles. Next, they receive encouragement to research and boldly experiment to create personalized works of art.
The Digital Edition comes as a fixed-layout PDF. Following purchase, you will receive a link to download your new book. You will have 72 hours to complete the download, so please ensure your system is ready to go, and that you save the file in an easy-to-find folder. Once you complete the download, you will NOT need an internet connection for viewing!
If you don’t already have it, you will need Adobe Reader or Adobe Digital Editions installed on your device. Most computers already have this program, but if not, you can download Adobe Reader here for free. You can also load the file onto a digital device that supports PDF eBooks including most iPads, Kindles, other tablets, and smartphones.
Studio Art: Inspired by Art History was created by Gina Ferguson Foster, author of The Master and His Apprentices: Art History from a Christian Perspective. As such, this course can be used with or without the full-credit art history textbook (optional). Page numbers indicate where the textbook supplements this course.
* This course has LOTS of FLEXIBILITY and can earn .25 to 1.0 high school elective credit, although younger students can also use the material. We recommend 12+ for primarily self-guided study.
