Friday Fine Arts Freebie!

  |   Picture Study   |   No comment

When I come across something as incredible as this Fine Arts Freebie, I just have to share it with my homeschool peeps!

I was thrilled to read this morning at The Oddly Said blog that the Getty Museum in Los Angeles would let you download FREE books of gorgeous paintings, sculpture and architecture… yes!  Free!

From the methods used to create Greek pottery vases to incredibly illustrated Renaissance manuscripts to DaVinci drawings…! This is a fantastic resource for any homeschooler, but for a Charlotte Mason home educatorthe opportunities for learning here are astounding.  speeches and language lessons!

You will use this Fine Arts freebie for years, for all ages, and in many subjects–not just fine arts.

That will keep you busy for quite awhile today, I’m sure!  🙂

Head directly there by clicking here!

 

Is anyone else as excited as me about this?!  If so, leave a comment and tell me!

    What an amazing site. Finally got a few minutes before going to bed to check a few emails. I could be up all night checking this site out and not even come close to scratching the surface! Now to just figure out when and how to get back here to see more. Thank you for sharing this site.

Tired of the tears (theirs and yours)?

 

You don’t have to tie them to their chairs to get their school work done. (Kidding. You never actually tie them to their chairs. You just feel like that’s what it would take to get them to get their work done.)

Instead of day-dreaming about ropes and chairs, make homeschooling an adventure by reading about swashbuckling heroes, damsels in distress, touch-and-go battles and dangerous escapes.

Immerse your children in the sights and sounds of history through reading excellent books. Bring history, science and fine arts to life by reading our best-of-the-best book suggestions. (A traditional textbook just isn’t going to do this for your kids.)

Like doing things your way?

Put together your own curriculum (history, language arts, science, and fine arts) using our chronological history unit study framework with hundreds of pre-read, best-of-the-best book suggestions and assignment ideas (Unit Program Tools).    

 OR…

Take a deep breath and stop worrying about not covering enough with our open and go Daily Lesson Plans covering history, language arts, science (K-8th) and fine arts.

All done for you and ready to go.

 

Teaching High Schoolers? Study history and literature by making a model, illustrating a scene from a book, or planning and putting on a Renaissance feast!

(We write essays, too, but not all the time).

Customizable to fit YOUR kids.
