Keeping art history fun for younger kids
Art history is a tough subject to teach without being boring. This session will give parents the tools to make it fun and keep it interesting even for younger kids. Using an art curriculum that she developed for a homeschool art class, Mary will demonstrate how to interweave information about the artists and their techniques along with a sample art project. Mary specializes in a cross-discipline, hands-on process that helps keep learning fun while helping cement concepts, ideas, and facts.
