Teaching Art at Home

Whether you’re supplementing your child’s public school education, full-on homeschooling, or just having fun on the weekends, there are so many great things you can teach your children about art- no matter how un-artistic you might feel.

Art has fundamentals, just like every other subject. You can learn these fundamentals alongside your children/students using our art lesson plans. For the most part, the lessons can be completed in any order.

Lists of the Art Lessons Available

Some people look for art lessons that tie in with the historical period they are studying or look for lessons teaching a specific skill. Here are some lists if that’s how you want to look at the choices:

Art lessons, arranged by historical period.

Art lesson plans, arranged by what art skills are taught in that lesson.

If you’re not sure where to start, we recommend our Science Meets Art Drawing package:

In these 6 lessons, we focus on the fundamentals of drawing with fun tie-ins to the world of science! (Subject integration is one of the hallmarks of classical education- read more about the classical model here.)

Each lesson also has modifications for all ages and experience levels.
