"An Introduction to Art History - A Classical Approach to Art History" is designed to be a first art history course for anyone desiring to add some art appreciation to their home or Christian school. All ages can learn together in these 30 minute sessions which connect other subject areas to the fine arts. Classical educators will especially love this first text in a series, which introduces Rembrandt, Carl Linneaus, and Edgar Degas to the student, along with delightful art lessons.

Included are colorful works by each artist, along with "Art Lesson Cards" for the art lessons. Students cut and paste "Masterpieces" into an "Art Gallery" and add their own art exercises, creating a delightful portfolio by the end of the course. Ages 6 & Up.

There are 36 brief art history lessons, 36 art lessons, and 2 quizzes. They are divided into 12 days of lessons for each artist, combining factual information about the person's life with a brief art lesson to complete. This course is copyrighted and allowed to be used by one homeschool, but is also suitable for homeschool group meetings or classrooms. Contact service@howgreatthouart.com for special pricing for groups.

Terms covered include: primary, secondary, and tertiary colors, tones, monochromatic pictures and color theory, foreshortening, Impressionism, Neo Classical period, pastels, composition, focal point, chiaroscuro, and more.

Subject area vocabulary is also taught, such as stamen, pistil, botanical nomenclature, species, public domain, draftsman, Laplands, and more.

We recommend printing the last two sections onto cardstock, to best support the student's art practice. These cards are also available in pre-printed form to purchase from howgreatthouart.com/store. You will also find a discounted bundle of recommended art materials at howgreatthouart.com/store.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
