If you have ever visited our home, then you know that art is extremely important to us. This past summer, we toured some art museums while we traveled. It made my daughter want to add art education to our homeschool, and the opportunity to receive and review HiGASFY Art History Video Series made it possible to do just that.

The Importance of Art in Our Home

Art has a special significance for my family. My father-in-law was an artist and taught at Lock Haven University. When he was still alive, he always strived to teach my kids something. His home showcased so much of his work, and we now have some of it in our home. Teaching the kids about art, art history, and why art is important is part of passing his legacy to our kids.

I think my father-in law would be happy to know that his oldest granddaughter has a fascination with art and is eager to learn all she can. As we visited art museums this summer, she expressed an interest in adding more art studies to her school day this year. Art history is important for her because she wants to know more about the artists and what was going on at the time they created their art. Needless to say, we were both excited for her to start this course.

 

About HiGASFY Art History Video Series

The “Have I Got A Story For You Art History Video Series,” or HiGASFY Art History Video Series for short, is an online subscription based video series that introduces students to the world of art. It focuses on four time periods in art history:

  • Renaissance Series – daVinci, Raphael, Michelangelo
  • Baroque Series – Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Vermeer
  • Impressionist Series – Monet, Pissarro, Degas
  • Post-Impressionist Series – van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso

Each time period contains video lessons. It also provides lesson plans-complete with activity ideas and more, flash cards to print, and a “Name the Artist” Powerpoint. This program combines, art, writing, history, geography, and science. It does contain a biblical application for each lesson as well. The age range for this program is grades 1-8. However, I think that even my sixteen-year old could benefit from this course.

What We Like About HiGASFY

My daughter learns by using her hands. She doesn’t like to just listen to a lecture or read a book. That makes this art history program a great fit for her. The videos are about 20 minutes long. After the lessons, there are other activities to do. Some of them include crossword puzzles and word searches. However, the kids get to do their own art work as well. They are encouraged to start a portfolio as they go along with the series.

We also love the flash cards. It gives my daughter the opportunity to learn and remember what kinds of art other artists created. She is proud that she can recognize different artists and their work!

One of the things I love most about this art education program is how it includes history, writing, and even science into the lessons. I strive for my kids to have a well-rounded homeschool curriculum and one that includes STEAM. This art history curriculum fits perfectly with my ideals!

    Art is very important in our home as well. We urge our daughter to be as creative as possible and suggest creative activities as opposed to watching TV.
