Course Description

Join us as we dust off the artwork of the Ancient times! Using ‘Story of the World: Ancient Times’ as our guide, we will embark on an adventure as we discover the first written text and journey 5000 years in 32 weeks to the the rise of Charlemagne. Every 2 weeks students will create an inspired piece of art relating to the history theme of the time. We will be using art tools inspired from each time period as we learn to make our own paper, create our own text, work with gold leafing, study mosaics from Persia, Egyptian hieroglyphic art, and terra-cotta inspired figures of the first Qin Dynasty.

TUITION: $240 Please see note on material expected EACH class.

Since our time in class is only 1 hour a week and we don't give homework we really encourage our families to purchase the SOTW book and read or have your student read the chapters we are learning about (Curriculums with chapters will be sent out before the semester starts). If you wish to follow along with us this year, I highly recommend the Story of the World book: Volume I: Ancients by Susan Wise Bauer. I also recommend the activity book, it is such a great book filled with recipes, map work, craft projects, stories and questions relating to the Ancient Times and is a great way to dive into the history outside of our class!

Other Information
With everything going on we are needing to change our policy on supplies, whether we go online or in person, to protect our students and teachers we are asking that each student supplies their own mini art kit, we have simplified it to a wonderful list of materials that hopefully you have some of at home already and the others we have provided a quick amazon list. You can also find the materials at any hobby shop, 99 cent store, Daiso, target, staples..etc, I know a lot of companies are offering great back to school deals right now! ART SUPPLIES NEEDED: 1)Sketch Book 2)Mixed Media Paper Pad 3)Watercolor Paper pad 4)Watercolor palette (preferably one that comes with a brush) 5)Oil Pastels or Crayons 6)shoe box or small box to keep everything in so students can have the supplies ready for each class! OPTIONAL ITEMS: 7)India ink (you could always use a fine tip black pen too) 8)Basic Gouache or acrylic set, whichever feels more comfortable for your family, if you want to just stick to the watercolor set that would be perfectly fine too! Additional supplies that you may have in home: scrap cardboard (we will be using these as paint palettes) watercups for paints We will be dropping our class fee to $240 from $255 due to this new change.
