Now that we are in the full swing of our new homeschool year I realized that there is one subject area I was lacking. I have struggled with how to add art education to our homeschool but HiGASFY Art History Video Series made it possible to add this subject to my son’s course work! My son is just beginning to like to color and do more art related activities so when the Review Crew was offered the opportunity to review the HiGASFY Art History Video Series I jumped at the opportunity.
We decided to study the Post Impressionist time period, because my son has not had a lot exposure I wanted to pick a time period he was most familiar with to study. I decided he wanted to study Vincent Van Goh. We check out books from the library and studied several pieces of his art work that is included in the curriculum bundle. For this review we used both the HiGASFY Art History Video Series and the curriculum bundle.
The HiGASFY Art History Video Series is a wonderful component to this program Mrs Beth and HiGASFY take the children on a wonderful art lesson of the artist and their art work. The children become fully emerge into the artistic time period. Mrs Beth gives the students artist background and she visually goes over the artist artworks in the video. She includes history and geography lessons as well in the videos. I really appreciated this part in the video series because it made the lessons more personal. I personally don’t know a lot about art and how to present it so this series was a huge weight off my shoulders. My son really enjoyed the videos because they were fun and Mrs. Beth was friendly and he like HiGASFY
The curriculum bundle is really nice, because it is a full lesson plan completely laid out. Each plan lays out objective, suggested activities, critical thinking, vocabulary, writing, geography and science. The curriculum bundle also includes flash cards, game assessments and TEKS for those who are in the Texas area.
