Styles of Art in History
The Art in History program by Creating a Masterpiece is a unique and new approach to learning about art in history. Most art history programs focus on learning about the life of the artist in that period. The Art in History program will teach students how to create projects that are similar to those created in that time period.
For example, the first lesson in the Post-Impressionism project introduces that period by briefly describing and illustrating some of the artwork of Van Gogh. Sharon then quickly transitions into teaching the student how to create a Van Gogh-style painting. Sharon’s goal is to make art history come alive by creating!
The projects have varying levels of difficulty. So young students (ages 6 – 9) can complete some of the projects, while older students should be able to complete all of them. The project descriptions will help in determining which projects are right for each student.
Historically Themed Projects
This Level includes projects with various historical themes. It is perfect if you want to incorporate specific projects along with your historical studies or just want to have a blast leaning to create. Some of the projects, such as Egyptian Nomads, are simple and short. Others, such as Abraham Lincoln, are much larger and require more time. Each project description will indicate the level of difficulty of the project.
