(Please scroll down for more information on the studio art course.)
Art History Course
Choose a digital or physical edition of the TEXTBOOK and TEACHER GUIDE to create your full-credit course:
The Art History Textbook
The Master and His Apprentices: Art History from a Christian Perspective textbook contains 600+ images across nearly 400 pages. Covering art history from Creation to today, this award-winning course brings art and history to life in a memorable visual context.
The hardcover textbook is perfect for teachers and homeschool families desiring a long-term resource. The large size and premium inks create a wonderful visual experience for anyone wanting to turn those physical pages.
Moreover, this art history book doubles as a full-credit course and handy visual reference. The appendix even includes a “travel guide” that lists every work of art by country and city/museum as well as a wall-length timeline that combines the art, Biblical/Christian, and world-history events highlighted in each chapter.
(Discounted Dent & Scratch copies are available here for $50 off, when available.)
The digital textbook is a fixed-layout PDF. It is best viewed on a computer but can be referenced on a tablet or phone as well. Once downloaded, no internet connection is required for viewing.
Generally, art history books can be super expensive. The author’s college textbooks cost $100-300 each and she literally needed a rolling suitcase full of them when teaching high school art history. Why? Because between the humanist ideology and nude images, it took almost a dozen books to present the content now contained in The Master and His Apprentices. Today, the digital edition solves this problem at an incredibly affordable price!
The Art History Teacher Guide
The Teacher Guide for The Master and His Apprentices contains 120 pages. Combined with the textbook, this open-and-go resource creates an easy-to-facilitate full-credit course even for those without prior art history experience.
The consumable softcover Teacher Guide contains perforated pages for easy removal. Simply tear out the weekly worksheets and exams as needed. Moreover, Print Rights are available for only $2/student, so you can legally photocopy worksheets and exams for your entire family or classroom (see below).

The Art History Teacher Guide Print Rights
It is illegal to photocopy, share, or re-sell consumable workbooks. However, the author understands budget constraints and, therefore, offers reprintable worksheet and exam rights for only $2/student. This way, you can legally print or photocopy pages from the Teacher Guide, affordably.
Save $$$, obey the law, and help support our family-friendly projects!
Each Teacher Guide provides worksheets and exams for a single student. Whenever additional students take the course you can pay just $2 each for the Print Rights instead of purchasing an additional Teacher Guide (essentially a student workbook) for each one. Many homeschool families choose to simplify things and still order an extra book for each student, but this cost-saving option is available for classrooms and any other interested users.
Studio Art Course
Select either the DIGITAL or SOFTCOVER version for the full-credit course:
The Studio Art: Inspired by Art History course covers principles such as value, lighting, and perspective; mediums including drawing, painting, and sculpture; and genres like landscape, portraits, and architecture through an in-depth fine art experience that broadens creativity, skills, and artistic understanding.
This softcover studio art course is perfect for teachers and homeschool families desiring a long-term, hold-in-your-hands-to-reference resource. This resource contains 275+ images over 102 pages.
This book includes 10 foundational art principles and 30 art projects to develop artistic creativity, understanding, and skill. Both the student and facilitator sections are contained in this single volume. The flexible, multi-level approach can earn students .25-1.0 art credit. Additional art supplies are required; however, many families find that they have the necessary supplies lying around the house to complete almost half of the projects already.
This digital studio art course is available as a fixed-layout PDF. It is best viewed on a computer but can be referenced on a tablet or phone as well. Once downloaded, no internet connection is required.
This book contains both the student material and facilitator instructions in one. This flexible, multi-level course can provide .25-1.0 art credit depending on how many of the 30 available projects a student completes. Additional art supplies are required, although these have been kept to a minimum. In fact, about half of the projects can be completed with supplies most families already have lying around the house.
The art history and studio art curricula can be used independently or simultaneously.
Page numbers are included in the studio art book for where additional helpful information can be found in the art history textbook (optional). Essentially, The Master and His Apprentices: Art History from a Christian Perspective provides a solid art history framework and Studio Art: Inspired by Art History provides a complimentary hands-on component.
Both are essential for budding artists, and each rounds out a high school transcript. Moreover, many students who don’t initially care for art find that they love the art history perspective!
