New Science Meets Art Drawing Lessons
We’ve added a new set of 1st quarter drawing projects connecting science and art:
- The Basic Lines and Shapes of Trees
- Drawing Leaves Using Symmetry
- Audubon’s Scientific Illustrations and Upside Down Drawing
- Creating Rhythm in Abstract Art with Fibonacci
- Atmospheric Perspective and the Science of Light
- Identifying Trees with Texture
A package with these lesson plans, plus the combined supply list and shopping list is also available!
PLEASE NOTE- We have two big changes going on!
- You can now create your own art packages! Just put $30 or more of qualifying products in your cart and use the coupon code 30OFF for a 30% off discount! (Larger packages already have this discount applied, so the coupon code won’t work on them.)
- We’re rolling out new multi-user permissions with variable pricing depending on the number of users. Read some FAQs about permissions here.
Studying Great Artists: Baroque Through Impressionist
I’m so excited to begin the 3rd quarter of cycle 2 fine arts! This is when we get to study artists from the Baroque, Neoclassical, Romantic, Realistic, and Impressionist Periods. In my opinion, these are the best time periods! (Confused about Art History? Get help here!)
We’ve updated our lesson plans for Cycle 2:
- Drawing Facial Expressions Like Rembrandt (Dutch Baroque)
- Painting Landscapes Like Gainsborough (Late English Baroque)
- Plein-Air Painting like Monet (Impressionist)
- Capturing Action Like Degas (Impressionist)
- Creating Texture like Morisot (Impressionist)
- Creating Movement like Van Gogh (Post Impressionist)
I also hope to add a few more lesson plans about other artists from the Neoclassicism, Romantic, and Realism periods in August of 2019 (Maybe Jacques-Louis David, Thomas Cole, and Winslow Homer?)
Amazing Artist Extras
We also have these fun extras for teaching your students about these great artists:
Be on the lookout for podcast episodes about each of these artists starting late 2019!
